I am desperate to find financial assistance for my degree. I am trying to obtain a bachelors degree of registered nursing. I recently reached my lifetime maximum pell grant allowance. With only two years left and the cut to my financial aide, I am unlikely to finish my program without assistance. I am a single mom of three children and we only have my income to survive. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
I am a 23 year old mother of three and also have Power of attorney (custody) of 3 other children and beginning college. Is there any help I can get with child care other than families 1st (I cant get it on the child I need it for bc PofA is not exactly the same as custody). I am so excited to start college in a few months bc only 24 of us were picked and now that I have these 3 children extra and am worried about not having somewhere for them to be while im in school and I cant afford childcare. Thanks, Ashley.
Required for enrollment. Before enrolling at the University, admitted transfer students must submit an official high school transcript. The transcript is used to verify completion of the units in foreign language and mathematics that are requirements of many university degrees. Although the high school transcript is not required for admission, applicants are strongly encouraged to submit it with other admissions credentials by the deadline.
It’s helpful to keep in mind that though some awards seem too small to make much difference in your educational costs, every little bit matters. When you begin your studies, explore opportunities for further scholarship assistance and financial aid through your actual college or university. Some of these may be specifically tied to nursing, while others may be linked to your participation in campus organizations. Be aware of awards programs and competitions available on campus, and take advantage of these unique opportunities to stretch your educational dollars.
The search for scholarship funding for nursing studies can seem overwhelming at the outset. It is important to evaluate a variety of avenues, and it is especially important to begin your search early.
