No, this is a very common internet myth, but there is not much evidence to support it. By most accounts, Mr. Obama's grandparents saved up money to help assist him as an undergraduate; he saved a little of his own money for graduate school, working for five years, and he also got scholarships and student loans. He has said that he and his wife Michelle were finally able to pay their loans of college, about six years ago.
