Aid for non US citizen
I was Nanning for a family paid under the table but recently got laid off. I am living at a place and not paying for any rent because I have put a lot of labor work into the house. I can't afford to put any more labor work though because I have phase 1 of degenerative spine disease. I don't have any medical insurance, I barely have any money for food, and I certainly don't have enough money for school. If I want to find a nanny job it needs to be walking distance to my house because I don't have enough money to pay for gas.
I found out that you guys or there is a program that helps with gas vouchers, but not sure if that would help non us citizens like myself. But I'm on a bind and I'm only 22 and I really want to go to school and transfer to OSU. I'm in debt right now to OSU at around 3000 dollars, the money is going to collection agency but I'm unable to pay for it. My family doesn't have any money and I’m pretty much on my own.
I don't qualify for grants, loans, or financial aid being a non-citizen. All I want to do is to do well in school and find a job and make ends meet but I am not able to do it. I need help and not sure who to talk to or what to do. I feel my future going nowhere. I feel like I'll never go to school and get a job. I'm in a debt to a school (for campus) that I really want to transfer too. And I’m unable to pay this quarter's 2000 dollars.
I have already applied to every scholarship available to non us citizens-- haven't received a single one. Is there someone else out there like me? I'm only 22 years old and feel desperately alone not sure where to go or what to do, and I hate having to ask for help because I’m not being self sufficient. Thank you so much looking forward to a reply!
