Thanks xbusymom,

A friend received a $2600 grant recently for agreeing to teach in poor schools for two years, but if the schools are closing I wonder if she will have to return her grant.

Her reasoning was she needed a new job and she needed $2100 by the end of this month to pay her property taxes. She put her house up for sale over a year ago and NO BITES.

Her current job is in Commercial Real Estate which is not paying anymore.
