Finding the money to pay for returning to school can be a great stumbling block for a lot of people. School is expensive and if you do not want to go the route of getting student loans that have to be paid back then you should follow these simple steps that will help you get the scholarship grants for dads you need for school.

  1. Fill out the FAFSA or the FAFSA4caster (if it is before January 1st of the given year). The 4caster will help you determine how much money you may get from the government to help you pay for school. And by filling this out, you will get a head start on filling out the FAFSA form, which must be completed as early as possible in the year once you do your taxes in order for you to have the chance at the most money.

  2. Research for grants. There are quite a few different grants from the government that can help you pay for school. While some of these are merit based, meaning depending on your grades or community involvement, others are based on income and the subject you plan on majoring in. An example of this is the TEACH scholarship for studying teachers.

  3. Look for scholarship grants for dads. These types of financial aid may be based on your ability to do something well such as dancing or acting. Sometimes these are directed at a certain gender or age of a student too. Plus there are even special contests that are totally free you can enter to win even more money.

  4. Start early. Don't wait until the last minute to start searching for money. Do it early. Especially the money from the government as this goes quick and if you wait, you may not receive as much money as you could have gotten. Plus a lot of the scholarships have deadlines all throughout the year.

  5. Mail your applications the correct way. Again, be sure to have everything ready early. Do not stuff your application into a regular legal size envelope. Get a large manila envelop and place your application inside, making sure it will look nice when taken out. Be sure to mail it out in plenty of time before the deadline. And, if possible, put tracking on your package. That way you will know that it has arrived.

By following these simple steps, you should have a good chance at receiving college scholarship grants for dads that will take off some of the financial burden of school.
