I am going for my economics degree. My husband refuses to let me get a student loan because of the economy and I am not promised a job and he doesn't want 20 grand in debt with no job to pay for it. (I know, most everyone gets financial aid, but hey, what can I do?) I am eligible for a full pell grant as far as i know, so that is a huge help, but I need scholarships, too. Any ideas? (BESIDES from the school itself, I know that!! :])Answer Question
Start at a community college. The prices will be low, some classes may be online, the credits will easily transfer to a state or private university. The college financial aid office will be able to help you get started.
www.fastweb.com is a great website to find scholarships
