College students should receive a grant that covers entire and tuition, room and board including all fees and does not have to be repaid from the federal government. The cost of attending college is going through the roof and many families cannot afford it. This grant should be enough to cover each college students expenses from food, gas, rent, and textbooks. Tax payers money could then be spent on bettering the future of “todays youth”. Rather than supporting those that have been on welfare for years, and those that are making no attempt to better themselves and taking advantage of the system.
Receiving this grant would be determined based off of SAT scores and High School GPA's. ...view middle of the document...

For those students that would reside on campus would be spending on average anywhere from $4,000-$5,000 a year for on campus living. Most cases this would be a small dorm room living, they will be living with another student that chances are they never met in their entire life. Receiving a grant would make living situations more comfortable for those that would want to live by themselves off campus, or even those that would want to have a large group of students rent a house and have a real college experience. This part of the grant could be given to those that do not commute, but if all of the money is not spent, the remaining balance would be given back to the state.
Getting out of the dorms, and residing off campus is always in the back of students minds. It gives you a sense of freedom and is a way to relieve yourself from school frustrations. For those students with high enough GPA and those accepted for a grant to assist them would receive a stipend that would assist them with furnishing an apartment or house that they would be residing in. Everyone is always thinking about the cost of rent, but many forget the cost of the items that will actually take up space inside your "home". Things like beds, clothing storage, cleaning supplies, etc. all collectively add up. These can over time become very expensive to those on a "student budget". I believe these types of items should be covered in the grant, which will assist students and give them a better lifestyle throughout each semester.
When living in the dorms you must purchase a meal plan each semester. Meal plans can be very very expensive considering the quality of food you are consuming. Granted, some Universities do have an excellent selection provided to students. But to most it is a repetitive system that can be irritating and cause students to pay out of pocket when they go to grocery outlets or out to dinner in the town once they are tired of eating the same food provided at cafeterias. Giving students an option to purchase a meal plan would give them more free range on what they will consume. This has the potential to make students happier. Constantly going to the cafeteria for lunch and dinner every day and seeing the same food after awhile can make you sick to the stomach even when walking by. Also, the food at the cafeteria is very over priced; a bottle of water and a...
