Encourage Dad to Fulfill His Education Dreams Every dad wants to do the best he can for his family. However, many dads lack the education necessary to get a good paying job. Or perhaps your dad is not happy with his job and has a dream career that he never had the opportunity to go after. The best gift you can give is your love and support. Encourage your dad to fulfill his education and career dreams by providing him with the tools necessary to succeed. Show dad his earning potential with our infographic of average male income.

Visit the Careers and Education grant guide to find out everything dad needs to know about help paying for his college education. Print out the information and give it to your dad in a nice card. Our grant guide is here: collegepellgrant.org Find Schools That Offer Degrees in Your Dad’s Chosen Field The school guide on Careers and Education offers information on many different types of careers (everything from business administration to game developing). Find out which schools might work for your dad and request more information. Our school guide offers searches by degree choice, type of classes (campus or online), and by school. Help Dad Network by Taking Classes on Campus Campus classes provide opportunities for dads to meet other students with the same career goals. By taking classes on campus, less experienced dads learn to problem solve in group situations. Another benefit of taking classes on campus includes making lasting relationships that may pay off in the future in the form of employment opportunities, career development and friendships. Busy Dads can get Degrees Online Online education offers the same degree programs as campus education. Class work is done online but the degrees carry the same weight as traditional ones. The difference is that dads can complete course work when it is most convenient for them, whether it be on the weekends or late at night.
