programs have application deadlines, so if you miss

apply. The delay depends on the program(s) that you
apply for. The sooner you apply, the sooner you can
be accepted and start to receive funding!
How many grants can I apply for?
There is no limit to the number of grants that you
can apply for. You should apply to as many programs
as possible. This way you will maximize your chances
of being accepted by at least one program, and
possibly more. We can help you decide which programs
you are most qualified for.
How much does it cost to apply? Is there a credit

as often and to as many programs as possible. Your
credit worthiness is not an issue for many programs.
In fact many programs exist specifically for those
with little to no credit. Government funding is
often an alternative to conventional financing. You
can even have bad credit or a bankruptcy and still be
eligible for many programs.

programs require a minimum or maximum age, but most
programs are administered on the basis of other
criteria. All of our resources clearly indicate
