You could also do Americorps or the Peace Corps. They (and I'm sure there are other similar organizations) offer loan forgiveness as part of the incentive packages for joining. But to just find free grants to help you pay of your loans now, good luck. To be honest, I can't think of why an organization WOULD do that. The purpose of those grants is to assist students in paying for school who couldn't otherwise afford to go, i.e, their education is jeopardized by financial hardship. Once you've got your education, finances obviously no longer jeopardize your completion of whatever program you did. Why would they than give you money if there are still other people who need the money and aren't done yet?

(I don't mean for this to have a sarcastic tone, but email isn't good for facilitating the expression of tone of voice.)
