I was eligible for financial aid through grants cause my mom and dad are disabled. I recently just found that that the money that you get to pay for your college semester bill is refunded for the money you have left. This came as a surprise as I thought the government used the money that was left over for taxes. My uncle got almost 1000 dollars last year and I may get 2000. My bill is only 1500$ plus books i need to buy for school. Do that really just refund you the left over money that was not used? I mean I got really good aid it was like over 5000$.
