Since I don't know what area of technology you are interested in studying, nor do I know what State/City you reside in I am only able to make a few general suggestions.
I can suggest that you look up *Foundations, *Organizations , and *Professional Associations at the State , or Federal level ( where you reside) , also some are within the Colleges and Universities that you are interested in attending . There are some Public and Private Organizations and Professional Associations that fund scholarships/grants /fellowships/, and financial assistance for graduates in the field of technology you are interested in pursuing.
The National Science Foundation would be a good place to start, also look up "National Coveted College Scholarships, Graduate Fellowships,and Post Doctoral Awards" Better hurry and file as the dead lines for many of these programs are coming up soon. Hope this helps.

You are the driver of the bus that is your life....What ever you want to become you can become, and it has nothing to do with luck .You can become a Lawyer, Dentist, Teacher, Counselor, Artist ...what ever you decide to become you can acheive. You have the power to decide what you want to be and you have the power to attract that and manifest that life you want into existence .
As a wise man once said;
" Whether you believe you can or you believe you can't you are right either way." This is a quote from Henry Ford ,, those are powerful words mostly because they are true, and yes that is just that simple....... So * Believe you can acheive*.
Of course you are smart enough to know there is going to be work involved too , but you and you alone are the deciding factor of what you can accomplish.
"Give a man a fish and he has dinner for the day ,but teach a man to fish and he has food for life."
If you let me know what "Degree" you are going to school for and what city /State you are in. I can look up more specific information that may help streamline things for you. You of course will have to look up to see if you meet the " eligibility requirements" , and then apply for the grants/scholarships,( before the dead lines) and write the 'essays" to get the assistance that you need to succeed. Also there are Organizations that may be of help for your mothers ( foreclosure situation) too. You have a good energy and that will help your situation greatly.... I truly hope you much happiness , and success in your life , and career .

Thank you I really am greatfull of your help I will do as assisted and it will work out by the grace of God and hard work by me. One day I will have the greatest success story in all of sports and I am going to to come right to this website and help as many people as I can who deserve it. To everyone struggling out there do not give up miracles happen in the fourth quarter but you have to keep fighting and clawin yourself to the position to see that miracle it won't be given. Nothing in life is just flat out given unless your lucky which none of us are. I will pray for myself and everyone else to get through the struggle. Remember God wont put you in a sittuation I cnt handle. If you have bad faith in The Lord think this you can breath air but you can't see it. We have a way out but right now we just can't see it. M. Keys remember the initials and match this story one day destiny

With out knowing exactly what State / City you are in I can only give you a few suggestions. Look up Scholarships and Grants in your area for your specific degree you are interested in earning.. If you are an athlete there is financial assistance based on that too. Look up information at your local library and the College library you are interested in attending. Some grant information is often in the reference area behind the librarians desk and you have to ask for it and leave an I.D. to be able to look up additional funding that may not be listed "on line" or available in the financial aid office. Most people do not know all there is to know about the grants and scholarships avaliable ( as there are literally hundreds of thousands of grants and scholarships out there) if you want that information you have to invest in your self and spend the time to look it up for yourself . You seem a determined and willing to make your life better for your self and others in your life , so here are additional suggestions.
Look up *Public and *Private Organizations in your area that will be of assistance to you. Then look up *Professional Associations that cater to your specific ethnicity/degree/need. A lot of grants and scholarships are based on "financial need" but some require "merit" of some sort such as high grades ,conduct,character , and some may require an "essay" ( for example) why you think you should get the funds. Some are specifically for those of a certain ethnicity , for example they have grants/scholarships/ and educational funding for those who are "Asian,Hispanic,African American, Indian,Pacific islander,etc... the list is endless. Look up" non traditional grants and scholarships too as some help just because you are.... a *single parent, (or) are *left handed , had a *parent or *relative who served in the military who died or was injured, and There is assistance for those who were in *foster homes,or those who's *parent worked in a specific field (or ) business. There are many many organizations and Associations that are willing to be of assistance you just have to do some searching and find the ones that suite you the best. If you are in need of "emergency financial assistance" Look up "Catholic Charities,Salvation Army and other "emergency financial assistance' Organizations in your area ( and may have other grants avaliable too ) they often help out with a one time rent deposit and rent, electric etc. If they can't help you they usually refer you to some one who can.
I hope this helps

I need a miracle to be quite honest. My family has been through a lot, especially this past year. My mother, two brothers, and I have been struggling to get by lately. My mother writes grants for a non profit company for practically free. She also helps run a six week summer camp for children with social and developmental disabilities which I have volunteered at and more recently became a counselor at. She is an amazing person and I look up to her an incredibly great deal. She is the strongest person I know and yet the most patient and kind. She is understanding, passionate, and determined. I love her to death and she has even inspired me to start my own nature camp for children with special needs. My mother and father were divorced when I was young because he became involved with drugs and abused my mother. He is still a burden and will show up for a month and stay with us and then leave and we won't hear from him for weeks or months at a time. When they split she really didn't get anything but us and the two bedroom house we lived in, but that was all she needed. We moved to Wheeling, WV when I was in third grade to take care of my grandfather after my grandmother died. My grandfather died the same year and the house was left to us as part of an unsettled estate. Last fall the house that four generations of my family has lived in burned. I was the only one home and they said they couldn't figure out the exact cause but it had definitely started near my bedroom. I don't know what I did to start the fire and I watched helplessly as fire trucks took what seemed like forever to come. We had no insurance because the house was part of the estate and we could not get insurance on it. It was an extremely hard time for my family, but the community responded very graciously and the parents of my brother's friend allowed us to move into the two bedroom house they owned. We have lived here a few months but they have now asked us to move out by July after my an incident with my father. The estimated cost to take down what was left of my home is around twenty-thousand dollars. We do not have that type of money, nor do we have anyway to get it. I don't know where we will end up if we can't find a place to live. Rent is very high here and almost everything is taken already because of the fracking industries' workers. I am a very brave person thanks to my mother but I am scared, and even if she doesn't show it, I know she is, too. I have been very sick the past couple months and have missed half of my senior year due to a dysfunctional gall bladder which I recently had laparoscopically removed. I missed going to my state swimming competition, state tennis competition, and state speech competition. I was not permitted to go to my senior dinner dance, senior prom, and I am not even permitted to walk at graduation with the rest of my class and friends due to my excessive absences from hospital stays. My G.P.A. Dropped dramatically and what should've been an easy process of applying to colleges and scholarships has become a struggle. I do not even know if I will be able to attend college now and further my education to pursue a lifelong dream of protecting our environment. I am desperate to find a solution to the mess I made of my family's lives. I need a miracle. If you know of anyone or any organizations that could help my family please contact me at, or at 304-280-8328. My mother is a good person and doesn't deserve the challenges she has been forced to overcome. My little brothers are talented and I do not want this to become the reason they give up hope. I am just hoping that somehow I can find a solution. Thank you so much for doing what you do. It's amazing that people don't realize what a difference they can make in someone's else's life. Thank you for embracing the gift that you have earned, and sharing it with the rest of the world so that others may have the same opportunity to become successful and give back.

Hey "C" !!!!!

I've missed you.
I'm going to do better than hitting a "like" button. For you, I'm going to hit the LOVE button ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
Thank you for putting me in my place. I don't know why misspelled words bother me so much. I know it's what's in the heart that counts. When little children write and misspell the words and some of the alphabet characters are backwards, I think it's adorable. But for adults, I don't know. My thing with spelling may be rooted in the fact that as slaves, Black people weren't allowed to read and ignorance helped keep them in control. There's no forced slavery anymore. There's really no excuse for so much illiteracy. Knowledge is power. But people have become "slaves" to a system of poverty. Too many people seem complacent in their ignorance. Rather than being serious about their education, they want to sit in the classroom, texting about the party they're going to that night. And then, when they can't get a decent job, they feel perfectly justified in asking for handouts.

Oh well. Once again, stepping off my soap box. Leave a donation in the collection plate on your way out. And don't be a stranger. ☼☻♪♫♥

I wish there was a like button. You give such good advice :)
Not so sure on the spelling issue though. I've know many people with a college degree that couldn't spell worth a hoot. Just wasn't their strength. Spell check doesn't always help either.

I don't know if I qualify for anything but I am a college student I am 20 years old and my life is falling apart. I am living in the dark. My whole family is disapearing and I'm just a kid trying to get out of the hood. My father is already homeless and that hurts me even though he hasn't been there my whole life im quick to forgive. My mother's house is up for forclosure right now. She is working three jobs and trying to live a stable life but it is not enough because of my schooling. I know a scholarship will come to me really soon but this problem has jumped in the way. I recently had a son and he will be on the streets soon also if I don't find a way. These things happen and there is nothing I can do about it. My only option is to turn to crime which I have avoided many times how tempting it is with my enviroment. I am the only one who can fix my family and make it out of this city. I have a balance of 2134.25 cents left for my spring bill. Time is running out and all I get is that fake smerk saying they can't help at the finacial aid office. The NFL is my final destination along with graduating. Some say I'm the best they have ever seen. One day I want to set things up so I can make it so nobody else has to go what I am going through. I read most of the stories on here and it even hurts me I can't help them and I am currently down and out myself. Please help me you can save a life right now. If I have to go back to Erie PA knowing that everything was ruined over 2000 bucks I wouldn't be able to live the same ever again. Nobody wants it more than me I will clean toilets whatever I have to do hard labor anything. I just want to be a positive person and that can't happen if what is about to go down goes down PLEASE i really need help. If you can't help me please tell me a person who can I just want to live.
