Get the Funding You Need for School

You’re ready to go back to school, but you’ve also got kids, pets, bills and everything else in life that demands money. How are you going to pay for the utility bill, let alone tuition?

Luckily, there are places that you can go to receive grants, scholarships and other funds to help not only pay for school, but also help cover your living expenses while you’re attending. 

Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)

This website should be the first place you visit when you’re searching for scholarships. The federal government has made grants, loans, and work-study funds available to students who are attending college or a career school. Some schools even require that you fill out a FAFSA form before you attend.
