If you are involved in education, or if your family home-schools, I need your assistance (for information, not money I know how this sounds).
A friend of mine is graduating high school as a home-schooler. Her father recently lost his job, and the family is living off of what was the kids' college fund.
I know there are programs out there to help students in this situation with funds to go to college but I don't know where to find them and I am sure all of you here can imagine what happens when you try to search for legitimate things such as this on the internet. Loans, grants, scholarships... anything that you may have information on would be greatly appreciated.

I recommend having the parents/student visit the guidance department (or whatever they call it now) at the local high school. The front of the office is usually full of pamphlets/information regarding scholarships and grants.
Don't pay anyone for any forms. Don't pay for seminars. Where is this person going to attend? The school that the student will attend will also have financial aid departments. Is the graduation this year or next? Community colleges are great for both vocational training and transfer to accredited 4 year institutions. Federal aid is also available to community college students.

As has been said, fill out a FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). Make sure they go to www.fafsa.ed.gov, not any .com sites. The commercial sites charge quite a hefty fee. Plug in the exact numbers as directed, but also have your friend explain the job loss situation to the financial aid administrator.
