CollegeScholarships.org has information for low-income students seeking need-based scholarships. Fastweb.com is another trusted resource for connecting to scholarship opportunities.

Americorps VISTA is another program that can help you fund your education. After a year of service to your community, receive a $5,350 education award to be used for existing student debt or future college expenses. Many institutions will match your higher education award, increasing your scholarship potential to over $10,000. During your year of service, you will also receive a small living stipend and other benefits. See VISTA positions open with the Alabama Poverty Project.
