I was awarded two Pell Grants during my time in college. They were extremely important to me, since I was footing the tuition bill without family assistance. I was able to go to a private college where we had small classes out in the field for my major in conservation biology. The Pell Grants reduced the amount I needed to borrow in student loans.Fletcher from Shelburne, MA | Map
