I am a full time student and in college  for Marine and Small Engines Technician.  I had some Grant and Scholarships  but still not enough to help pay my bills and gas expense.  I am doing great in school with a 3.93 GPA  last semester.  I just need help with necessities to survive. I was denied my unemployment because I went back to college.  I will be going back to my job again working road construction after this semester.  Please help if possible.  I don't want to drop out for lack of funding.

First, congratulations on going back to school and doing so well with your gpa. The only true "grants" we are aware of for students are Pell Grants. Have you tried to find some part time work to supplement your cash situation while in school? Driving for Uber might be an option since you sound like you have a car, and Uber lets you totally determine when you are available to drive and when you're not.

You might also try some of the personal crowdfunding sites that are out there. Since you are working hard and doing well and just need some extra help your story might resonate with people who want to help others. There are several personal crowdfuning sites now -- read about them here.
