      read through our website and see which agricultural scholarships you seem to fit the criteria for and apply to as many as you can. Try contacting the sponsors directly for any specific questions you may have. Set an appointment with the college you are interested in attending and set up a face to face meeting with the financial aids manager to discuss your options. Colleges have certain programs which may help you out and not a scholarship but a grant or fellowship for your personal profile.

    I’m a single Hispanic moehtr of three children. Eight months ago my ex-husband left us without a way to support ourselves sufficiently. We were evicted and have had to live with family and friends. I am enrolled in a college and work full time but there is still not enough money for me to support all four of us. The father has not given me any financial support but I really don’t want to rely on him.I want to be self sufficient, that is why I am going to college to get my BSN. I just need some assistance until I can support myself and my children.
