  • First apply at fafsa.gov if you are a mommy you automatically get a Pell grant. Then apply at fastwebs.com. Also my community college has a huge packet of scholarships avaliable to the public they need only apply.

  • Your first have to apply at schools so you have a school code to enter on the FAFSA. The FAFSA tells schools how much you MAY be eligible for, it does not mean you will get that full amount. It is for Pell grants, student loans and a few other state grants. You can also look on www.fastweb.com or www.scholarships.com for more scholarships. Contact the financial aid department at the school you want to attend and they can give you more scholarships to apply for.
