First of all, Good for you!!! You are raising a child and showing him that anything is possible if you put your mind to it. There is all kinds of help out there, so do what you need to do to succeed. It's worth it in the end.
1.If you want to go to school, apply for the FASFA first thing. If you apply in feb or march, you usually get an extra 250.00 just for applying early.
2. Ask your school if they have a scholarship
application. Most school will have you fill out one application and submit it to hundreds of scholarships
to see which one meets your qualifications.
3. Don't let your pride get in the way. I was a single parent of three when I first started school. I lived in Hud housing, on food stamps, applied for energy assistance through the welfare department, got assistance with after school child care, etc. I didn't have to work, I was able to focus on school and my kids without worrying about the bills. No, it's not the life of luxury but when I finish school, I will have that life. Now, I am married with five kids, no assistance, and still in school full-time. It's a hard road but well-worth it. Go apply for all the assistance you can get.
4. Most schools have a program for the non-traditional student, the ones that are over 24, or married, or have children, they will show you everything you need to succeed in school.
