I think what your doing is great. Hello my name is Angel, and I am a current student at California State University, Monterey Bay. I'm still doing undergrad courses for my Liberal Studies major. So if you find anything for that let me know. I'm going to school to become an elementary school teacher.

By the way, anyone who reads this: I am currently in charge of trying to put a program together for single parents. So if anyone has any ideas of things I can try to get started for my fellow single parents, please let me know.

Thanks

Hey Missabb,

This post is really old; I doubt that the woman you responded to is going to answer.

I'm pretty good at getting money for school, however. So far I've gotten 3 degrees and thousands in scholarship money, although Federal Aid has really been the key for me. I read about your going to school in another thread. Are you currently getting *any* assistance with the tuition?

Later,
Bobby

Thanks for replying Bobby. I didnt realize until after I entered my request how old the thread was. I am getting a small amount of state and federal aid. I was working full time prior to starting school so my income was a bit higher. So, I didnt qualify for much aid this year. The program I am trying to get into is pretty competetive, so I have to keep a pretty high GPA. I was planning to be able to work about 4-6 days per two weeks but with the load I am taking on right now I've only been able to work about 2. So with my income being much lower this year I am assuming that I may qualify for more aid. Any advice you have would be really appreciated. Thank you. Missabb

This is great of you to do - I'm glad to see so many people excited about their education. I found an article about college scholarships online that was pretty helpful. After reading it, I signed up for two of the accounts and have been hunting for scholarships since.

Best of luck

Jamie

I am new to this sight and it just happens that I am admitted at a college here in Pinellas County. I am returning to school to get an AS degree and become an RN. I happened to be online looking of scholarships and found this site and your post.
Can you send me any scholarship information you might have to get a nursing degree in this area of Florida?
Thank you so much for sharing!

to YoungMomOf3 and anyone else in that sort of situation,
The system sucks..when you make a little too much you assistance is cut off and you make too little. I am not sure what you grades /test scores were/are like but what can work is to apply to your larger state schools that have family housing, most of the time it is really cheap. I was @LSU in 2005 and my 2 bed apt with utilities was 425/month. Additionally you then get financial aid including work study, your work study keeps you "employed" and meets the activity hours requirement but since it is part of you federal financial aid package, it doesn't count as income. Best of both worlds. You should then be able to get your Medicaid (or at most large state universities , student health is included for free or low cost), food stamps,child care assistance (most daycare associated with universities are affordable for students and accept childcare assistance), and WIC. I wish you the best of luck
