Grants?

Does anybody know how to go about getting grants to go back to school, for single moms? I can look all up on the computer, but I wonder if anybody knows personally. I don't know how to go about getting them, and would like to go back to school, but still have money to pay bills.

I am not sure as I haven't ever done that but I hope somebody else can help you out.  Good luck!

 Check with the school that you plan on attending.  They usually have a long list of places to look.  I've never been able to find any grants for people taking less than 12 credit hours (which is considered full time) so if you find any let me know.  ;-)  I usually only take 8-10 credit hours so I don't qualify for any.  :-P

 I almost forgot....If you are low income you might qualify for a pell grant.  Have you filled out your fafsa?

Sorry, I know they exist but I don't have any personal experience with them. Good luck.

Be careful a lot of the links online are to sites that charge you to "look" for financial aid but then just can't seem to find any. Good luck both with your search and your education.
