Do you think I will qualify for financial aid?

Question:I never applied for FASFA before, sorry if my question is silly.

I am not looking for a loan, I am looking for a scholarship.

I am currently pregnant and both my husband-to-be and I are students, working part-time. Do I have a change to get some money toward my graduate degree or I should not bother applying?

if you are a graduate student, you would automatically be considered an independent student. the only aid for grad school you can get is loans. they do not offer federal grants for grad students. there may be scholarships available but that wouldnt be awarded through fafsa but some may require you to apply before they will award it. check out this website:
Depends on your grades and income for the most part. You're parents income is also a factor - even if they aren't helping you out.
For undergraduates there are a lot of opportunities to get grants to pay for college but much less so for graduate students. You may want to talk to an advisor at your university - specifically in the department you plan to major in. They may have scholarships available that you wouldn't get by applying for FAFSA.
I know if your a mom then u will get lots of grants and free money if your attending college. To get FASFA u would have to be poor. if you are then you will qualify...but since ur pregnant i think you will get some money.

good luch.
if you really need financial aid you should apply if you think you dont or not... you should qualify to say that your having a baby and working part time.. as far as marriage i dont really know what they will say... you should ask a professional anyway...
It never hurts to try. I was making a lot of money when I started my second year in collge and I still qualified because I had student loans from the previous school I attended so as long as you have good grades. It will help.
If you were working on an undergraduate degree, you'd be riding the gravy train.
The problem is, you are working on a graduate degree. I was in a similar boat, and it's just really slim pickings. I got nothing.
Prepare for a long, difficult road. Buckle down, suck it up, and any other saying you can come up with. You're probably getting no help whatsoever.
There's no harm in applying. You should definitely fill out a fasfa either way, because most scholarships will look at your fasfa anyway.
Good luck! I know there are places that you can get loans for graduate work but not many places for graduate. FAFSA only handles undergraduate degrees last I knew. I don't really see too much help coming your way .
There are many scholarships given out by government and other organisations every year. You can try for some online government scholarships or grants. Fill up online forms and see if you are selected for the scholarship.
