    The Benjamin and Patricia Allen Scholarship is a $1,000 payment offered for students who are the very first of their family to go off and attend a university. This unique scholarship is not limited only to felons, however, since statistically many felons come from underprivileged backgrounds, often it is felons who receive these monies.

    Many scholarships for felons exist in larger cities. In New York, STRIVE and the Rush Philanthropic Arts Foundation administer the Simmons Brothers Arts Scholarship. It is intended for contestants who wish to earn a baccalaureate degree in the arts and is awarded to one ex-con per year who has served many years on drug charges.

    First, file your FAFSA.  List the schools you might be interested in so those schools would receive your results.  Then, contact the school you are most interested in - they should be able to advise you on what Federal and State aid you might qualify for.  Some areas have various foundations or organizations that also assist ex-cons in obtaining an education.  You might ask about that at the school's financial aid office.  There is a program called "KISRA" that offers grants - but I don't know what areas they serve.  If you are or were on parole, you might reach out to your parole officer - they might be aware of some programs that could assist you.  The ONLY restriction on Federal Aid is for people who were convicted of a drug felony WHILE they were attending school & receiving Federal Student Aid.

    Grants and student loans are NOT available to anyone with a criminal record period.

      Actually, Snowflake, YOU are the one with the misinformation.  There is NOTHING barring people with criminal records from applying for and accepting Student Financial Aid EXCEPT drug-related felonies while receiving federal student aid... and there's even a cure for that.
