Hi, I am a first time visitor...feel free to bombard me with info
have't been to school in 15 years. applied for aid but incredibly, after going over our finances, gov found a whopping $15 000 we can pay toward my college fees!! Is there any scholarship and grants you guys are aware of I can apply for? I am not a single mom, don't have kids, no parents in the army or that has graduated high school and I enrolled at a community college.
Part time work is not even an option because I need all those hours just to work through one math problem!

thanx :D

Jorg, you may qualify for a Pell Grant at the very least. Check with your Financial Aid office on campus.

Good Luck with those math problems.
If little else, the brain is a fine educational toy.

hey, forget my last reply. I hadn't read this one. Are there any activities or organizations that you are presently participating in? Have you tried the free scholarship searches? If you fill out a profile then they find matching scholarships for you? Also don't forget to fill out your FAFSA to receive financial aid. What state do you live in? You should be able to find scholarships within your state.
