Scholarships, well it depends on the organization (school foundation, non profit, etc), usually for Fall use, you have to apply by end of winter/beginning of spring. Usually for Spring term, you have until the end of summer.. example..Spring 2013, apply by end of Summer 2012. It takes a lot of digging around to find scholarships (I started local, then went with national organizations), I used to keep a spreadsheet of scholarships for single moms ( I was granted 5 for my first year of school..woohoo!), it also took a lot of work to gather everything I needed. Good luck!
