I can imagine there have been many threads on the subject, but I have to ask...what options do I have/ what have you done to pay for schooling? so far I've applied for James beard and AHLEF, as well as AAC and NRAEF scholarship programs. I have applied for FAFSA, and got next to nothing, leaving me $20,000 short and without anyone to depend on for loans and contributions. Is there anything I haven't seen yet? and major source of help out there? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
