I want to go to college. Are there any grants for single mom's?

I need to do something. I feel like I am standing still. I want to get the education I was never able to get. I live in PA does anyone know of or received any grant to go back to school?

  • Go to and look up the "Pell Grant". It is for low income families and if you qualify it will actually pay you to go to school. Due to the fact they pay you more then you need for school, so you get to keep the extra money. There are plenty of grants and scholarships that you can get through the government. Also go to to see if there are any scholarships you could apply for.

  • Call or, better yet, visit some schools in your area and go to the financial aid office. They will have many resources to help you. Also look at Good luck!!

  • I just enrooled in school and i to live in PA. And yes theres lots of grants and monies out there for you to go back to school. I live in Altoona PA I enrolled at YTI career Institute and they are so awsome they are really helping me get what I need as well as puting me in the right direction to find other help out there but all you have to do is pick where you want to enroll and go from there.

  • There should be something out there for you. Wasn't Obama doing something for single mothers to be able to go back to school or was I dreaming?
