EducationGrant.org Now Offering an Easy Way to Find Grants and Scholarships

EducationGrant.org Now Offering an Easy Way to Find Grants and Scholarships












(PRWEB) July 27, 2011

As education becomes more important for job stability and movement, people are looking for affordable ways to pay for additional schooling. But finding grants and scholarships can be time-consuming and discouraging. EducationGrant.org now makes it easier to search and find information on grants, scholarships, student loans and financial aid to help potential students get back to school.

“The service we provide has helped thousands of students reach their full potential in an economy that can be so harsh,” said EducationGrant.org executive Rich Tucker.

EducationGrant.org gives students the opportunity to look at many types of education grants through a unique system of questions. The questionnaire is designed to target the right grant or scholarship for the right student, so students don’t waste any time with grants that aren’t the right fit. The questions range from student interests to location in order to find the right type of school and aid.

The website offers its services free of charge, and is aimed at every age—from high school students who are filling out their first Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to single mothers looking to go back to college. The website is geared toward all different backgrounds and all different ages, with a variety of choices for financial aid for everyone.

EducationGrant.org allows potential students to browse through different types of grants. Students can gain access to information on Academic Competitiveness Grants, College Housing Grants, Grants for Single Mothers, National SMART Grants, Need Based Grants, Pell Grants, State Sponsored Grants, and more. EducationGrant.org offers information on where to find these grants and how to apply.

Students can also find information explaining the differences between scholarships, grants, student loans, and other types of financial aid. The new site can help potential students find out which type of aid would be the most ideal and plausible for them. EducationGrant.org explains that scholarships are generally given on a merit-based status, while grants are given on a need-based status.

EducationGrant.org also keeps an up-to-date blog that discusses a wide range of topics relating to financial aid, including cuts to grant funding, repaying students loans, the importance of grants for academia and applying for financial aid. The blog is a great source of information for students or people thinking about going back to school.

People interested in knowing the latest information on available grants, scholarships, student loans and financial aid can subscribe to the blog at http://educationgrant.org/blog/.

EducationGrant.org offers free information on how to apply for grants and it operates in order to help people get back to school. Students or people who are curious about their options can visit the website (http://educationgrant.org/) and “find the money you need for your college degree.”

Jon Lukomnik


Northfield, Minn. (PRWEB) January 6, 2010

The Governance Fund, LLC, a private investment management firm, today announced that Jon Lukomnik, the founder and managing partner of Sinclair Capital, LLC, has joined the Investment Committee of The Governance Fund, LLC, and will serve on its Board of Directors.

Lukomnik brings an extensive background in asset management, both in the private and public sectors. Prior to forming Sinclair, he worked as deputy comptroller for New York City, where he served as the investment advisor for the city’s defined benefit pension plans, which encompassed over $ 80 billion in assets. During his tenure, the city’s pension funds materially outperformed the average large pension fund in America. He is a co-founder of the International Corporate Governance Network and a former chair of the Executive Committee of the Council of Institutional Investors. He currently serves as a director for Sears Canada, where he chairs the investment committee; as a trustee for the Van Eck family of mutual funds and investment trusts; and as a member of the International Advisory Board of NYSE-Euronext.

“We are delighted that someone with Jon’s stature and experience is joining our leadership team,” said David R. Koenig, chief executive officer of The Governance Fund, LLC. “He brings wonderful insights to our investment process and his particular interest in defining and quantifying good corporate governance makes him an ideal match for our company.”

Lukomnik commented, “Good corporate governance is important to individual companies, and also to the economy as a whole. The Governance Fund, LLC’s investment process is designed to allow investors the potential to realize outsized gains from the different return patterns of well- and poorly governed companies.”

Lukomnik is co-author of the award-winning “The New Capitalists” (Harvard Business School Press, 2006). He is the program director of the IRRC Institute (Investor Responsibility Research Center), which sponsors research on corporate governance and investor practices. In addition, Lukomnik was a founder and initial board member of GovernanceMetrics International, a corporate governance rating service.

The Governance Fund, LLC, a private investment management firm, uses a proprietary model to differentiate well-governed publicly-traded companies from those which are poorly-governed and seeks to capture the hidden investment value from this knowledge. The Governance Fund, LLC, offers both a long/short market-neutral strategy and a long/short relative return strategy to its clients.

For more information, please contact The Governance Fund, LLC, at 507.301.3149 or e-mail info(at)thegovfund(dot)com.
