Looking for help...

My mother died from leukemia one year ago. Recently because of her death my financial situation has deteriorated, and i am now looking for any scholarhipsor funds available to help me pay for my college education. I am currently on Medicaid, and have recieved all the financial aid the government can give, but i still fall short of funds. I am working part time at the university to attempt to make up the difference, but i barely made ends meet last semester. i attend the University of Michigan, which is a somewhat expensive school.

My father is unable to help me with funds because he was forced to declare bankruptcy while attemptting pay off my mother's large medical bills.

Any information you could provide me would be most appreciated.
