While there are many grants for parents and scholarships for moms now available for those looking to go back to school, it takes a certain amount of research to find these forms of financial assistance.
There are many ways that you can hone in on scholarships that apply to you and your studies if you intend on going back to school. The first tactic you might want to try is using the Web. On the financial aid website (http://finaid.org), you can find a number of resources to redirect you to scholarship programs and financial assistance.
Once you surf the internet, branch out into your community and see if you can talk to local businesses that might be willing to lend a helping hand. Many companies provide scholarships to students who are working toward a degree but could use a little extra cash.
Finally, don't forget to ask your school of choice if there are any scholarship opportunities available to you. Even though you may only be able to earn a couple hundred dollars through your postsecondary institution, every dollar counts. This money can be put toward everything from textbooks to transportation costs.
