I am presently attending a community college and plan to transfer to a 4 year and major in sports medicine. At this time I do not qualify for any financial aid. I was expecting a scholarship for this semester but it did not come through. My parents used their savings to pay for my first semester and their Christmas money to pay down some on my second semester.
I really want to remain in school this semester and continue my education. I have a 6 month old son and a girlfriend in high school. I know that I need to complete my education in order to support my family. My dream is to play baseball for a 4 year college so that I can continue my education on scholarship and possibly have the opportunity of playing pro-baseball.
Any help would be appreciated and I promise to pay it forward when I am financially able to. Thank you for considering funding my future.
**Update** February 7 2014
It snowed in our area and while sledding (on a make-shift) sled, I hurt my back. I have an L1 and L2 compression fracture. Luckily I will not have to have surgery but I did have to drop most of my classes because I cannot sit in an upright position for very long. They were able to move one of my classes to their online program. The Dean of the college recommended I do this because she and the professors did not see any way for me to make-up the work missed.
I will be wearing a back-brace for 4 to 6 months and start physical training week after next. The problem is that I withdrew after the cutoff date. I now owe for the entire semester. I had paid a deposit and then promised to pay the rest by the end of February. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
