Q:

I need information on Government grants for single mother college funding.

I have a 25 year old single parent daughter. My daughter cannot work as my granddaughter has a heart defect and cannot be put into daycare of any kind. She, my daughter, is trying to find grants that will pay tuition for on-line universities. So far she has been approved for a Pell Grant, but it won't cover all the tuition costs of on-line programs for on-line colleges she has found.
My daughter doesn't receive any child support or any financial assistance of any kind. She cannot pay back loans. We both have heard that the new Government Administration has plans for women just like her.
Can you help us find these programs? Any other information you may have to offer will also help.
Thanks.

Sorry to hear about your granddaughter's condition, and the college funding challenges your daughter is facing. I think it's great, though, that she is persevering toward her educational goals, particularly given her circumstances. It's also wonderful that she has your support -- thank you for bringing this question to JustAsk!
 
I would suggest that you and your daughter peruse Education.com's new special edition on college financing:
http://www.education.com/topic/college-financial-planning/
 
It includes a variety of articles that offer insights on how to find scholarships and other creative ways to pay for college, as well as info about the U.S. Dept. of Education’s efforts to ease paying for college.
 
Another website you and your daughter might review is College.gov, a site being built by the U.S. Dept. of Education in collaboration with students to help folks reach their college dreams. http://www.college.gov
 
You could also check out the U.S. Dept. of Education's current financial aid site: http://www.ed.gov/finaid/landing.jhtml  
 
Good luck -- I hope your daughter is able to find the resources she needs to complete college.

Transport loans can be employed to acquire an auto. Exactly like house loans these loans for single mothers require good credit report. With regard to signing up to an automobile loan any sort of auto loan dealer or financial institution could be used. To get a less expensive interest, it really is encouraged that you simply present initial advance payment so that the outstanding balance will only be the actual interest charges and never the auto price .

It takes patience to locate grants. You’ll find that there are business, housing and college grants for single mothers. However, you have to find the right resources to help you locate this financial assistance, and it's important to be aware of scams—for example, those that ask for money up front or "guarantee" they'll send you money. Keep in mind, too, that in many cases the money will not be advertised as "grants for single mothers"—but often there are grants for low-income individuals for which you can qualify. Just because the money isn’t described as “college grants for single mothers” doesn’t mean it’s not a source of financial assistance. Before you begin searching for grant money, consider all of the categories that you may qualify for because this will help open your eyes to the various avenues that may lead you to money for your schooling.
