Asking for Help Here: We need scholarship/grant money.

I'm putting out this appeal hoping that someone can help us. We are trying to piece together funding for Barry to attend Viterbo University beginning in the fall. As private colleges go, it's really not bad, but it's still going to be about $20,000 a year.

If you belong to a group that offers college scholarships that Barry might qualify for, please let us know. He is a displaced worker, a Christian, a firefighter, an EMT, a husband, a father, a first-generation college student, the son of a truck driver and coal miner, a home beer brewer, sails small sailboats, is a runner for exercise, and wants to be a nurse, specifically a trauma or flight nurse. If I think of anything else that might bring to mind a specific scholarship I'll post it here.

Small is no problem. A hundred bucks here and there adds up! So does fifty bucks here and there. Anything. And any grant money can save us from going more into debt with college loans. If you know of a scholarship that we can apply for, please let us know.
