- Tribal Grant Scholarships: Native Americans may qualify for a scholarship through their tribe. Contact your tribe to see if they can help you with school.
Resources that if you qualify, will help you with non-tuition expenses:
- Welfare-to-Work; program participants may be eligible for help with child care, transportation, and work-related or training-related expenses. Moreover, participants who find a job and are no longer eligible for welfare may continue to receive help with medical care and child care expenses. If you qualify, Welfare-to-Work can help pay for school materials and supplies, but not tuition.
- CalWorks Child Care Program: The purpose of this program is to help a family transition smoothly from the immediate, short-term child care needed as the parent starts work or work activities to the stable, long-term child care necessary for the family to live and remain off aid.
