    Default College grant programs for children of inmates?

    Is anyone aware if there are any scholarship or grant fundraising programs for adult children of inmates? I have been looking over the Internet and am not coming up with anything so far. It might be time to start fundraising for these children if there aren't any. Does anyone know how to get one started? Thanks for your time.

    Check with the financial aid office of the school the child will be attending. They have the inside track on all kinds of grants/scholarships/cash for school that might be applicable for them. Also, if at some point the child was a ward of the state/placed in foster care/under CFS (or whatever name your state uses for child protective services) there may be funds available due to that status as well.

    Good luck!

    Default Thanks

    I have contacted the college and have researched engines and they have been somewhat helpful. I am think of setting up a website and begin to attempt fundraising for adult children of inmates so that they can go to college. Thanks again for your time and suggestions.
