College is expensive, but you can find ways to make it affordable — it just takes research. There are college scholarships for just about everything you can think of, and at least one of them has your name on it.
For one, you should check out this Peterson's Featured Scholarship: Education Aid's Support a Student Scholarship Program for Single Fathers. Single parents who are enrolled in school or job training programs have many barriers to completing their education, many of which are expenses. This scholarship program was developed to help these parents stay in school by providing the financial support they desperately need to pay for these expenses.
Peterson's can help you find college scholarships other than the featured one to help fund your education, too. When it comes to paying for school, you're not on your own.
