Sigh. My husband makes too much so I wont be granted OSAP or a federal loan. I've been researching scholarships
, and it seems that I am getting excluded from them all in some way or another. I looked into "Mature Student" scholarships and found for 90% of them you have to be over the age of 30 to be eligible! Or, you have to qualify for OSAP in order to qualify for them. (doesnt make much sense because many of them say if you get OSAP you automatically are disqualified for other scholarships
Then, I get excluded because I am not a high school student! I have to wait until i'm entering 2nd year before I can apply for certain awards. My grades are excellent, but thats not even helping!
I'm so frustrated!!! I need help in 1st year!! And seriously, my husband doesnt make THAT much (and we have 2 kids under 7 to boot!! They dont even consider that part!!)
Sigh. I just dont know what to do! We thought we'd be ok for first year (we knew i'd have to work some) but now I'm petrified that I'll have to turn down an acceptance because we wont be able to afford for me to go
What can I do? I plan to apply for everything anyway, but my gut is telling me it'll just be a huge waste of my time.
Any ideas on how I can raise some money?
