Supprise!!!


I get  a summer off. Holy crap! It’s not exactly how I planned it but hey, I'll take it! Apparently my financial aid counselor missed the fact that I don't have enough money to finish my degree. The federal gov't has cut me off. As I was preparing to enter the home stretch (12 more credits to my B.S. from the University of Phoenix) I came up $5000 short. I am slightly pissed, but at the same time it means no studying this summer. SO boo and yay! I suppose I'll be spending the time I'd normally be in school "researching" (read surfing the internet) and looking for scholarships and grants. So any of you who know about any scholarships or grants for 37 year old white males let me know please?

Good luck! I'm also home for summer from studying at college with that same mixed feeling. Scholarships can be hard to find (especially when you're a white male) but if I ever hear of one, I'd let you know. Try going back to your guidance counselor (even if you are taking the summer off, they are normally still accessible) and see if he/she has any advice on finding scholarships/grants. Or look up grants pertaining to your particular field of interest. Good luck!!!!!!
