Have you applied for the Soroptimist Scholarship? The deadine is December 15th and, to my knowledge, no one has submitted an application for the $1,800 award. The locals clubs usually award several scholarships to COD students.
A requirement to apply is that the student be female and financially responsible for a child(ren) or a family member. The money can be used for childcare, transportation, books etc - you are not limited to using it for tuition.
