There are a few ways to get financial aid for college, but the best way is still to apply for Free government grants. The FAFSA application is a short questionaire that asks about your family’s income and your education status. If you were a ward of the court you can apply as an Independant student. Independant students don’t need to provide thier parent’s information.
The whole application takes only about 20 minutes, but you can get several types of grants and aid for any community college and university with one application.
