Single student moms? - Page 2

Where does one begin to research what kind of aide they could qualify for? Start at the school you are attending?

Your school will determine the amount of aid needed to attend.  Every school has a general budget for their students, although you can speak with the financial aid office to adjust the budget for certain reasons. 

 

Once the school receives your FAFSA and deduct what the FAFSA determines to be your contribution, you will be offered various grants (only for undergraduate, unfortunately) or loans to cover the remaining budgeted amount.  

 

If you haven't done your FAFSA... do it NOW, especially if you are an undergrad.  The earlier you turn in your FAFSA, the more grant money there is available.  It's on a first come, first serve basis.  If you are a grad student, it doesn't matter because there are no grants available to grad students.  irked.gif

Found this on some of my searching today. How awesome and progressive is this that some schools offer a special help program for single moms?!  FAR too few on this list... but it's a start, right?
