I've spent the last few semesters going on pure pell grant (after learning that student loans are evil, sadly about 5 years too late). The problem is that I changed my major a couple of times (and got my associates at a different school in a totally different field where the hours didn't transfer to anything useful for my current degree), so I'm almost out of pell grant available to me. I called and they said that I have enough for next semester and then I'm on my own.
So we've started saving and plan on saving taxes, but it would be great if I could get some scholarships. Since I don't go full time (too hard with two kids), none of the ones through my school are available to me at the moment. I will be going full time for my last year though because I have to for my education classes (biology teaching major). Anyway, Dave Ramsey mentions in his book that a spoke with a lady who got some sort of scholarship program and applied to a ton and ended up getting quite a few. I don't need to get a bunch, but if I don't have to pay for my schooling out of pocket, it would be great.
Has anyone actually used one of these programs? Was it a ton of work to apply to them all? How many did you end up applying to and how many did you get? Which one did you use? Did you pay for it?
Thanks in advance!
