A Government Grant is an aid program specially designed for helping those who have financial difficulties and cannot achieve, due to lack of finance, certain goals the government is interested to promote.
Government Grants Explained
Though there are many different government grants for a lot of purposes, as noted in the first paragraph, most of them concentrate on three goals: Helping people start their new business, helping people pay their way through school or college and helping people buy their first home.
Grants are provided by government agencies all over the country and at all levels of administration: There are Federal Government Grants, State Government Grants and Local Government Grants.
Each agency has its own requirements and though qualification is not as difficult as it may seem, the truth is that you need to be informed in order to successfully apply for a Government Grant without fear of being declined.
Grant’s amounts range from hundreds of dollars to tens of thousands of dollars. As the loan amount get’s higher, it becomes increasingly difficult to qualify for. So you ought to know the requirements beforehand and apply as early as possible. It is known that most Government Grants are granted on a first arrived, first served basis, so timing is a very important issue not to be bypassed.
The smartest thing to do is, by analyzing grant’s requirements, to select the Government Grant you are best qualified for and concentrate on applying to it. There are certain grants restricted to citizens of certain states or towns. Others are restricted for those working on certain fields or for those coming from certain economic conditions.

There are a lot of things that you can do to "advertise" yourself. I have a basic PC and one of the programs that comes with it is a simple sound recorder that I have used numerous times to record my voice and put it on my website. You can get really creative and add sound effects and even add sound effects to your own voice. You can hire yourself out as voice talent. I have come to find out that there are a lot of people that have Internet radio stations but they don't like the sound of their own voice - so they can use yours instead.
How would you make money with this? Well you can hire yourself out as voice talent. You can set up a webpage listing all the general information like what you charge and what you charge for. I even read about a woman that started her own business doing answering machine voices/sound effects for others.
This may sound like a complicated thing to do but for those that have an interest in this type of thing it is another example of how you can start a business from your home doing something that you love!

I will address your first question. Time and time again I have noted on both pages about grants and grant-related information about the availability of grants/scholarships and funding for those that are disabled, single working mothers and or those wanting to continue their education. The answer to your question is "Yes" there are scholarships and funding that you can apply for. As a matter of fact the number of funding programs that you are eligible to apply for increases because of your disability and the major that you have chosen. I know for a fact that there is an organization devoted to helping single mothers and will even help in them paying back their student loan. I found out about this organization when I was finding grant programs for a client who is also a single mother. And this is just one of many programs.
You have to understand that these funding programs (including the scholarship programs) were put in place to help fill a need. In your specific case the fact that you want to continue your education in the field that you mentioned above is one of the reasons why there are scholarship programs at all.

When you start to find these programs you are going to find that you are going to have to be more specific about your information. There is not a program for all teachers however there are programs for teachers that meet a certain criteria. For instance there is one program that pays $2500 a year towards the teacher's student loan - up to $10,000. However not every teacher qualifies for this program.
