    Have you talked to your Financial Aid Advisor at your school? They were a big help for me.

    Good Luck!

    Try calling every club or civic organization in your town. They sometimes have money for scholarships (Ruritan, Moose, etc.). Also, some churches give scholarships within their own denominations. Read the newspaper also. Sometimes there are scholarships posted there. Have you thought about nursing loans that can be worked off if you work within your state? Where I live you can borrow $3000 a year and it works off at $471.00 a month if you work full-time after graduation. You can get it paid off pretty quick! Vocational Rehab. can sometimes help too!

    Good luck!
