Im trying to find ways or scholarships to help me pay for school. Im not sure where to look or what to look for. My dad was killed when i was a baby and my mom went to prison, like many people who have had bad childhoods and disadvantages i need help, isnt there some kind of help i can get using my past. they have a 9/11 fund what about those of us who have had bad things happen to us like my father being killed and me being abandoned..i dont meann to sound selfish i just dont know how to find help so i can better myself and my future.

    Have you applied to colleges? The colleges themselves offer the most help. How are your grades and scores?

    In what state do you live? Have you done some research on colleges? Have you started the process yet? What year in high school are you? Have you spoken to your high school counselor about this?

    Who has custody of you? Your mom? Someone else?

    Are you a senior?

    What state are you in?

    What are your stats?
