I am currently enrolled in a Community College and I have been awarded a Pell Grant that really only covers my tuition but nothing else. Can I apply for a Stafford Student Loan to help pay for my books and other supplies I may need?
Yes you can. It is infact quite common for students to take on additional financing options to cover their educational needs in the form of student loans, scholarships and other eligible grants. Students loans themselves come in a variety of choices but fundamentally you are looking to either go for a federal student loan such as Stafford loan like you’ve mentioned or a private student loan made by a bank or financial institution. Do make sure to read up on each type of loan, the terms and conditions, the interest rates and the loan term. We have quite a bit of articles on the topic and reading them will help
