Hi Diamond! Great question! First of all finishing your FAFSA every fall is important, as this will provide you with financial aid for each year of your schooling. Next, talk to your school's advisors and financial aid office, look into the resources that they may have, given each school is different. Good luck, hope this helped!

Work-study jobs on campus are amazing if you qualify for the money (check with the finance department at the college). There are two types of jobs that I would recommend for work studies: food-perk jobs and study-perk jobs. For food-perk, if you work at a cafeteria, you can get a lot of extra free food that isn't ramen. At my graduate studies, I was able to get a job as a student supervisor, which landed me infinite free food, which was a big win. I put on a lot of extra pounds, though, lol. For study-perk jobs, there are quiet jobs such as dorm front desk or library work where you are allowed to study and do homework while you are working. It helps you stay focused since you usually won't have friends distracting you from your studies. That way you can actually hang out with your friends and not be stressed out about the assignment you needed to make time for.

You can look into programs that help students with food security such as food banks and programs like CalFresh. A lot of schools offer work study for students that need financial assistance. Scholarships are a great resource. If your parents work for a company that offers scholarships to their employees' children, you may have a greater chance of receiving the award since their is a smaller pool of applicants.

Dear Jessica, have you considered speaking to an advisor at your college /university for resources accessible to you? If you have parent's that work for firms there may be scholarships you can apply for. Your school counselor will also have resources to show you how to access other scholarships you can apply for. Plus financial aid that can assist with room, board, food etc. If you are not in college yet and in the process of transition your high school counselor can assist as well. Government social workers may also be an avenue.

Do you know of anyone who has received funding assistance? Or other friends who may be looking for the same assistance. Perhaps you can do it together or if they are a little further along than you then they can give you more ideas.

Best wishes.
