Scholarship Help

So, my adviser tells me I should be applying for scholarships with my status as a non-traditional student, my poorness, and my pretty good GPA. (3.2, though it could be higher. I failed Math last semester. :( ) I have absolutely no clue what I'm doing though, there's so many choices and places to apply my brain sort of freezes. I was never taught this stuff by my parents (along with not teaching me how to do my taxes, how to pay bills, how to use a checkbook, etc.)

It's sort of embarassing. So anyways, I was hoping you guys could help me. Here are some facts that could help give you idea of where I am.

I'm a non-traditional student (29 yrs old, going for a four year degree. 2 years a community college, 2 years at Tennessee Tech
Majoring in Criminal Justice Administartion
3.2 GPA (It WILL go up once I fix my Math score. I make A's and B's through and through.)
Unemployed (For a while now...), full-time student.
Me and my Dad are living off of 819 dollars a month. We rent and have car payments too.
Never went to High School, pediod. Barely went to junior high. ;P

Can you guys think of any scholarships that would fit me? I'm completely lost.

    Your school should have a financial aid office or at least a financial aid counselor. Make an appointment with them. Also apply at

    Oh yeah, I got pell grants and FAFSA down, just not sure about scholarships. The, uh, financial aid office wasn't all that helpful. Basically said "look online."
