Where can we find scholarships or grants for my brother?
He is the last year of high school and is entitled "A". He wants to continue with their education, but money is a problem because my parents are low income. We are 7 brothers and sisters, including myself. My dad is the only working at minimum wage. We are a Hispanic family. Is there anyone who can help us out on grants or scholarships for my brother, please let me know will appreciate it, and my family. Thanks
Do this first: www.fafsa.ed.gov After his brother (if employed) and their parents file taxes, fill that to see how is the EFC. If it is a "0", then just wait until the entire amount of assistance that will reach the school before fetching all over the place for scholarships. After this: Once you know how much it is going to come home from school (usually takes a couple of months to find), then you can check scholarships.com or fastweb.com out. I do not recommend doing this before he learns how much he will come home from school, because he must inform the school the amount of money expected from grants and which will affect the amount of the school day. Your brother needs to really be doing these things for itself, most applications and personal information need some kind of test. He is an adult and must take responsibility for these things, financial aid agencies wants to communicate with him, not his brothers or parents.
