Someone mentioned FAFSA, go to fafsa.ed.gov for the official website. You shold have your tax information with you because they will need this information. Your filed taxes are better. I believe there is a lot of scholarships that can help you also. Check to see if there is a foundation at your school for those who need financial assistance. Some schools have a foundation that little people know about. You can do it, don't allow obstacles to get in your way, because trust me things will happen, but presevere through it all. I started LPN school when my youngest was 4 weeks old. I was already hormonal, I was blessed to find a teacher that told me to fight the good fight of faith. Wow, that day I had planned on dropping out because I didn't have the money or materials that I need. The instructor made a couple of call and needless to say the dean of Instructor walked me to the book store with his own personal chheckbook. I lie not. He told me if I needed help for the rest of my program to apply for a scholarship that he was apart of the board. I got financial help every semester. Yes, I had pell, but my pell wasn't enough.
