    After searching and considering for any very very long time, I have finally had a thing that could just be the start of advisable.

    I wish to let the improvement of education in the united states. *That helped me to figure this out, you have to have the ability to begin with the presumption that education (K-12, completely up with the college institutions) in the united states needs serious improvement.

    Specially the re-introduction from the arts and humanities, the encouragement of creative problem-fixing. Certainly instruction from the sciences and math likewise need improvement, however i aren’t seeing that as my focus.

    A) I’d rather not be a school teacher, although possibly for any couple of experience.

    B) If you will find relevant non-profit organizations, what amount of study would get me right into a greater position for the reason that area?

    By “encourage” (“the advance of the standard of education”) I am talking about: BOOST, REVITALIZE, INSPIRE, PROMOTE, STIMULATE, RESTORE, strengthen, SWAY, ADVANCE, assist, SUSTAIN, UPHOLD, ADVOCATE, BENEFIT, SERVE…

    If I have to clarify (such as with “how?”) incorporate a question, and that i will come up with more clarifications.

    I have a Bachelors with a double major in Political Science and Urban Studies and a Master in Urban Planning with an emphasis on community development (social and economic aspects of urban planning). I got the masters in 1997. I have had no more formal university education in 10 years and I am in my mid-30s. I have been working in the affordable housing industry as a staff assistant, property manager and administrator.

    I had always planned to pursue my education further and family and friends thought the same, but I got to eat and pay bills. I’ve always had a thirst for knowledge and research and finding out things for either the sake or learning or to apply it to something. I got my masters straight after getting my bachelors, so I had been in school 6 straight years after high school, so some associates joked about me not been in the real world. Now, after 10 years in the real world, I now have the ironic opposite problem of trying to find the best way to get back into “academic” shape. Heck, I’ve only been to the public library three times since getting my masters. I do have lots of practical continued education related to my job or keeping up with standard office software and do have a lot of books from my own library that I read, however.

    These are some options I’m exploring:
    (1) Take some classes at local state university and/or through distance education colleges to get study habits back and strenthen transcript (it is possible, though not necessarily an absolute goal that I could get second bachelors from this route from a college like Excelsior), then pursue PhD
    (2) Pursue the MBA, then pursue PhD
    (3) Pursue Masters Degree in another area such as economics or geography that complements my previous education on the political science and urban studies side, then pursue PhD

    Back 10 years ago when I was still in grad school, the professor who was my advisor had suggested to me that I go to an MBA program. I had not thought about going to get an MBA before, but he saw that I had loaded up my urban planning coursework with electives in social statistics and economics (he knew I could have taken a lot easier courses). He wanted me to consider going to a place like Wharton. He felt that the combination of a masters in urban planning and an MBA would be a dynamic combination for someone interested in community development. I considered that, but like I said, I need to eat and since I came from very modest means (poor), I needed to work. I am was already in debt trouble, so I wasn’t interested in taking on more student loans and will not ever take out any more student loans (and I intend to self-finance any future education and/or pursue any available grants).

    Now that I’ve been out for so long, not only am I academically rusty but I’ve also lost contacts with potential recommenders (a few of whom have since passed including my graduate advisor). So as I see it, at the minimum I need to take a few college courses just to make sure I still got the touch, as well as for the regular business of getting recommenders and strengthening my transcript.

    I anticipate that the pursuit of the PhD in my situation will be a 8-12 year project. I’m now in my mid-thirties, so I would hope to have the PhD completed by the time I’m in my early to mid-forties. I expect to start my comeback with a course this Fall. For the next year or so, I expect to stay enrolled continuously either in a traditional course or distance education course.

    I am looking to enroll in the LPN to BSN completely online program through The College Network and Indiana State University. I will never have to go on campus for any reason. My clinicals will be local and classes strictly online. Is there any financial aid that will help me with the cost of this program? Are there any scholarships that will apply to it? I know The College Network offers guaranteed financing, but I would like to have to pay back as little as possible considering I am broke. TIA for any help.

    I get a grant and I don’t really understand what it’s purpose actually is and what it means. The description on student finance says: “The grant is paid into your bank account at the start of term. You don’t have to pay the grant back, but any grant you get will reduce 
the Maintenance Loan you can get.”

    So what does that actually mean?
    does it reduce your maintenance loan and give you free money or do you use to the free grant to pay off some of your maintenance loan? If that’s the case then I will have NO money for actually living …

    I’m just confused.
    For those who understand grants in the British system please help
    I may sound stupid but I just really don’t understand. 🙁
    Basically is the grant used to pay off your maintenance loan or is it purely rewarded because your from a kinda poor home, and is used for students to buy food, drinks, go out, texts books, etc (bascially living)?

    I am a mother of 2 who just quit my job to go back to college after 10 years of employment. Are there really grants and scholarships other than what you would normally know about when applying for aid? What about grants(not loans … as a parent i am already up to my eyeballs in debt and am trying to defray as much of the expense as possible) grants or money to pay my bills while I am in school…? Or is all this “free money,grants etc.” advertising i hear everywhere a scam? I could sure use the help if it is available. I am a 35 yr old white female and i intend to study in the areas of geology and archeaology and be teacher certified… if this helps in your answer. thanks for your answers!
