Dude a scholarship has NOTHING to do with loaning money. Did you even get a financial education? Clearly you only learned interest futures and stopped, or you don't comprehend English well, or you have a severe vision disease that causes words seen to become whatever you want them to be...
The original subject was about loans, how soon some as you forget. You are the one who said you were starting a scholarship fund for black students who couldn't qualify for loans. I know this is confusing for you, but don't try and change the subject again. Get someone to read the posts of this thread to you slowly, you are the one having problems with the subject. BTW, just came back from my annual eye check last Friday, all is well. Thanks for being such a caring person about my visual acuity. How many have benefited from your scholarships? Bless your little heart.

But, this is such an important topic. Can people come up with solutions rather than personally attack one another?

Solutions:
Avoid developing habits which foster bad credit and avoid a criminal background at all costs. These 2 characteristics alone hurt anyone's attempt to get a loan. When you have bad credit work and save your money for college. The acquisition of a criminal background will limit your entrance to most colleges of your choice. During financial difficulties our country because of Sequestration has cut back on some government spending. The occupier of he WH has made student loans to students of bad credit, border guards, and citizens visiting the WH as target cuts. I agree with him on these cuts and hope more spending cuts follow. We have a person on this fourm who has volunteered to offer scholarships to black children with poor credit, but haven't seen any evidence of his succor attempts.

I believe this only applies to the PLUS loan. Students should not be impacted. This should only impact who want to share in the expense on their childrens' behalf.

Disenfranchised is an excuse.
Quit letting our youth use these excuses for failure, the best policy against failing is trying again and again. Those who work the hardest usually win, those that don't enjoy having you make excuses for them for why they fail.
