Scholarships, Grants, and Government Contracts
My top priority as your Member of Congress is to help our community prosper. That is why I am providing this resource page to help you find and apply for available Scholarships, Grants, and Federal Contracts that can finance your goals.
I hope you find this page beneficial. The American Dream is one click away.
I. Scholarships: Our youth, artists, and scholars hoping to nurture their talents deserve every opportunity to afford higher education and demonstrate their potential to society. There are many scholarships available to aid our young and brightest Americans build a stronger future. Click here for more information on student aid opportunities.
II. Grants: There are many grant opportunities out there that are available from the federal government, corporations, non-profit organizations, foundations, and charitable trusts. The funds distributed are used to carry out a very specific purpose and there are grants available for a wide selection of topics. Click here for more information on grants and federal domestic assistance.
III. Federal Contracts: Many may opt to create their own employment opportunities. Doing business with the government provides great opportunities for those who want to create their own destinies. Federal, state and city contracting can help capitalize and create additional revenues for your families. Knowing how to access the resources available is critical to success.
