COLLEGE GRANTS,ETC.FOR A CHILD WHO LOST A PARENT
I am a single father due to wife's death. My daughter will be graduating 2010. She wants to attend college to be a school teacher. Does anyone have knowledge of grants,etc. due to loss of a parent? I been told that she will get plenty of help because of this. If you do know of this please briefly explain how to go about getting her into school. Can't thank you enough.

I've not heard of any specific grants for students who have lost a parent but since she is considering a career in education you might want to ask about the Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program which started last summer. A borrower's debt will be forgiven if he or she works in a public service job full-time for 10 years. Fields include public safety, military service, social work, education, or non-profit and to qualify a borrower must make 120 payments to the Direct Loan Program during the decade.
she should go talk to the school she wants to attend. The financial aid person is who she should see. They will come up with the best possible solutions for her.
