    Many people might be tempted at the idea of getting free money for the pursuit of some sort of dream such as education.
    However you should be asking where such money comes from and using the Internet to discover independantly of any website links exactly what the money is for and if you qualify.
    Most importantly if you apply for a loan or a grant you will never have to pay money up front to get it.
    This is always a scam.
    Fake Facebook Educational Grant page. https://www.facebook.com/Student-Grants-Application-1745266275752584
    "Whether you are in school or thinking of going back to school, there maybe up to $5,775 Free Education Grants or Scholarship to help fund your learning."

    Ask yourself why a United Kingdom site http://easy.vhacks.uk/educationgrants/ is showing American videos and dealing with dollars. You need to be dealing with people from the country you are in because the US government will not give you a cent if you happen to be from Peru, Thailand, or anywhere else. It is a scammer run site.
