There are a few options you can explore. The best option is the scholarships. Many scholarships go unclaimed every year, simply because students don't apply for them. The reason for this is students are not aware of them. Here are some suggestions of places to search: the financial aid office at colleges, high school guidance counselor, U.S. department of labor free scholarship search tool, your State website, and the library. Though many may think the library is outdated and just relies on the internet, there are loads of books that list every type of scholarship you can imagine, it's like digging into a goldmine. Send letters to family members, family friends, churches, non-profit organizations, foundations, private and public companies, etc and share the news of your acceptance into the school and the challenge you face financially. You will be pleasantly surprised at many of the responses you receive. There are always student loans through the government, schools, and banks. Keep in mind they must be paid back usually soon after graduation. Unfortunately, many students find themselves in a position where they may have to work while attending college. You will really have to put in some work by dedicating hours daily or weekly searching for scholarships, but I assure you it will pay off. I know you will be successful and have a seat in your dream school Ohio University. Good Luck!
