Pell Grant needed

Post by MPippin » Sat Dec 29, 2012 9:48 am

I am a student at the University of Texas at Arlington. I am going back for my second degree to be a nurse. I live in Houston, I cannot find a job, and my unemployment pays 170 every two weeks. I was making 30k a year when I moved in, but now I am struggling every month and I get a 10 dollar late fee for every day that my rent is past due. I have paid 100 this month but I think they may evict me. I got an eviction notice last month. I am doing well in school. I am making As in my classes. But my water is turned off; they turned off my electric last week and I am drowning. I do not qualify for a Pell grant since this is my second bachelor’s degree. My credit is too bad to get a personal student loan. I just want to get through school to be a nurse and help people and more importantly be able to support myself.

There are many scholarships to try, both in Texas and other states too in case you decide to transfer. But if you have that long a list of needs, such as for water and utilities, you may be better off going to a cheaper college, or moving back home and going to school. But until then, locate the different college grants that can help.

I am currently a college student looking for work to help me offset the Pell Grant I have. Unfortunately because I am unemployed I don't have the money to be able to make rent this month. I do not have anyone in my life that can help me financially. I'm just feeling lost and scared. I'm afraid that I'll be evicted if I can't pay my rent soon. My rent is due on the 1st of every month. It is $430 plus a $20 late fee every day that I am behind.
