If you happened to become a dad unexpectedly, you probably had to quickly find a job so you could support your new family. This may have meant that you had to give up your dreams of going to college and having that great career, as it was more important for you to just be able to make enough money to put a roof over your heads and food on the table. But maybe now you are sick of not being able to make a comfortable living so you are one of the many dads returning to school this year.

Before you know it 2010 will be here, so if you are planning on going back to school, now is the time to start looking for help. The government grant money for education starts taking applications at the first of the year and the money goes quickly.

Not only can you get money from the government but there are also scholarships for dads returning to college that you may receive. A lot more schools are offering scholarships for adult students, as there has been such an increase in that demographic of students.

You can seek out these scholarships through the school(s) you are thinking about attending, plus you have to keep your eyes and ears open for every scholarship contest that you can enter. Some of these will require an essay or maybe even a video application,but others are given out just as a drawing. And don't be fooled into believing that these are not real scholarships. Somebody does win these, and the next one may be you. Especially with the new scholarships for dads returning to school.

Be aware, though, sometimes there are scholarship scams and in order to enter the contest you are asked for money. Never give anyone money to enter scholarship contests or to have someone find you a scholarship. Just pass up on these "opportunities" as real scholarships for dads returning to college do exist


This month's Scholarships for Dads scholarship contest is ending soon, so enter now to win.
