  • Check with the financial aid office at your college. They should be able to hook you up with applications for any grants and/or scholarships you qualify for. :) Good luck!

  • You have lots of options. Check online you'll be surprised. Sorry I don't have any specific names, but all I know is there are lots of them waiting for you.

  • There are other grants for different states and also different colleges. I think there is usually one that is for single parents that need help supporting their child like daycare and things while they are going to school. Ask your school about it they will help you anyway they can and they will show you were and how to apply for other grants

  • Financial aid at your school of choice is the best bet
