Anonymous asked in 教育與參考出國留學 · 1 decade ago



去年我移民到了美國,還是位學生,目前就讀社區大學。去年我有上網填表申請美國政府的FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) 的教育補助。第一步是核准了,不過是去年年底的事情。今年我打算繼續申請,可是被親戚阻止,原因是他們說在我在入境前有遞交一份 I-864 form-經濟擔保書,他們說如果我向美國政府申請了教育補助等於是使用了美國政府的福利,而成為「公共負擔」,美國政府會進而向他們要錢因為他們是填表格的人。我是一個人和親戚住,想請問,我是綠卡持有人,美國居民非正式公民,就讀社區大學,可否向美國政府申請補助呢?這樣政府真的會跟我親戚要錢嗎?

謝謝您的回答,我會這樣問是因為我看重新看了一次I 864Form的內容, 所以有一點confused..這是否會影響到我親戚,這點我比較擔心,而申請FAFSA也就是向政府申請的意思,跟我的年紀會不會有關係呢??.....I have no income, no tax return, only band accounts and some ID cards...btw, could you send me the website of things you put below? thank you

    Federal Program Offers Another Source of Financing for StudentsOne of the numerous potential sources of financial aid for college

    students is a Federal Pell Grant. This grant is a form of need-based

    financial aid, and unlike a loan, the money does not have to be repaid.

    Eligible students receive a specified amount each year under this



    The U.S. Department of Education uses a standard formula to evaluate

    the information a student supplies when applying for a Pell Grant. This

    formula produces an Expected Family Contribution (EFC) number, which

    will determine if the student is eligible for the grant. Applicants

    must be undergraduate students who have not earned a bachelor's degree.

    Each applicant must be a U.S. citizen, or an eligible noncitizen, and

    needs to have a high school diploma or a GED or to demonstrate the

    ability to benefit from the program.

    The maximum Pell Grant for the 2010–11 award year is $5,550. The amount of the grant depends on both the student's EFC and several other factors. These factors are the student's cost of attendance....

    .....or an eligible noncitizen-你的身份就是附合規定,不要聽人們說,因為知的人並不多,自己多看說明及規定.

    若是「公共負擔」為何讓你申請呢?...Each applicant must be a U.S. citizen, or an eligible noncitizen,.....

    Good Luck.
