Looking for financial aid. Deceased parent, near eastern studies, Jewish.?
I was wondering what sort of financial aid is available for me. IHere's all the information I can think of that might be relevant:
I'm going to be a sophomore, and my mom died June 29th. Also, if it helps any she had two liver transplants prior to her death. I'm a Near Eastern Studies major (focus in Persian language) with minors in political science and philosophy who will be transferring to a community college for the fall to be with my family,then hopefully transferring to Ohio State Winter Quarter. I'm Jewish, speak French, and am learning Hebrew, Persian, Arabic, and German. I'm also a recovered bulimic and bisexual. I'm looking for scholarships not contingent on grades, since my grades last semester weren't great due to my mother's illness. My dad's ex-military. My career goals are either government, non-profit, or to become a professor. Could anyone help me? I've tried a few search engines but none have really given me good results.
