    I use the pell grant and you can also do strafford loans. Go to fafsa.com

    Many online colleges administer federal aid, so you could at least be eligible for the Federal Stafford Loan and the Federal Pell Grant if you show a lot of need. Some schools (if they’re been around for a while) will also offer Federal Perkins Loans and Federal SEO Grants.

    Please, though, if you want to apply for these types of aid, don’t go to fafsa.com — it’s a huge scam. You should only ever file the FAFSA by going to the Dept. of Ed’s website, here: http://www.fafsa.ed.gov . If you need assistance or have questions, there is free help available in a lot places: check out FinAid (http://www.finaid.org ) or contact your school, former high school, or library.

    There are numerous scholarships available from a wide variety of sources. Try any or all of these scholarship search engines:
