Forgiving Student Loan Debt - Bailout Petition!

The forgiving student loan debt petition to stimulate the economy is an issue that recently has become a heated topic. Due to the horrible nature of our economy in the current recession, debt consolidation has become rare. Currently there is a student school loan debt forgiveness petition: Forgive.. Student Loans Debt petition, and at least two Facebook lenzs. (Sign on Facebook to join the Cancel School Student Debt to Stimulate the Economy group, the stimulate the Economy group, the forgive Student school Loans, and the Student school Loan Forgiveness Program Facebook groups). Then call to contact your senators and representatives, to voice your opinion on the current petitions to Forgive Student Debt Loans.

The Forgive Student Loan Debt relief has over 193,000 members, wanting the government to spend $550-$600 billion necessary to completely cancel all college loans debt.

A 35 year old attorney from New York; named "Robert Applebaum" has become something of a spokesman for many people in the U.S. burdened with student loan debt. Robert Applebaum's Facebook group and are among those who are seeking an overhaul of the U.S. student loan system. He has an idea on how to help many in his shoes - while stimulating the economy at the same time. He started up an online campaign last February to bailout those "hard-working, educated middle class" parried in school loan debt. He formed on Facebook the group "Cancel Student Loan Debt to Stimulate the Economy" because Mr. Applebaum believes that it would help boost the economy from "the bottom up" by forgiving student educational loan debt for those making under $150,000 annually.

Many believe that it is a very good idea to forgive student loan debt, and the government should consider this debt bailout idea with student educational loans very seriously.

However, there is also others who feel thankful enough that their state, federal loans and private loan providers had programs in position to offer them the school loans. To not repay them, and ask for consolidation bailout or a complete student loan debt forgiveness as a financial relief, is an insult to the hard working taxpayers.

College Loan Bad Credit

College loan bad credit

Never let financial restraints keep you from getting a quality education. Even if your credit is bad you still can afford going to college. Consider getting a co-signer. A family member with good credit can help you get loans with favorable rates and terms, despite your bad credit. I’ve also found some loan options that have nothing to do with your existing credit.
The federal Stafford Loan comes in two types - subsidized and unsubsidized. Credit doesn't matter with the Stafford loan. The subsidized Stafford Loan is awarded to financially needy students. If you qualify, the federal government pays the loan interest due every month while you’re in school and for the six-month grace period between graduation and repayment. The unsubsidized Stafford Loan is available to every student, regardless of need. Another advantage to the Stafford Loan you can reapply every school year!

Perkins Loans
The federal Perkins Loan is another solution for poor credit borrowers. This is another government subsidized student loan that requires no credit check. Perkins loans are available for both undergraduate and graduate students. Typical loan awards are between $1,000 and $4,000 for each school year, not to exceed $20,000 total.

Maybe you are pursuing a degree in one of the health science fields, such as medicine or nursing. There are student loans specifically designed for health science students that are completely credit-free!

The Department of Health and Human Services sponsors the Loans for Disadvantaged Students program, a low-interest, and non-credit based loan, available to socially and/or financially disadvantaged students seeking degrees in approved areas of the health sciences profession. You are required to apply for the Loans for Disadvantaged Students program through the financial aid office of the participating school.

The Nursing Student Loan program provides up to $4,000 per school year to qualifying nursing school students. Loans are low-interest and come with a grace period of 9 months. Recipients must be enrolled at least half-time in an approved nursing program and prove adequate financial need.

The Primary Care Loan program is designed to provide auxiliary, non-credit based student loans to those pursuing medical degrees with a focus on primary care. Loans feature a grace period of 12 months. One of the requirements is that the recipient must remain practicing primary care for the duration of loan repayment.

Now my favorite one the federal Pell Grant. The great thing of a Pell Grant is that disbursed funds do not require repayment, they are a gift. Also nearly every state government offers scholarship and grant money. Now is up to you!!! You too can go to college!!!
