Kennedy's Educational Fund

Hi family and friends! I need your help! My mom and I both misread one of my scholarship awards and it has resulted in a shortage of funds to cover my college expenses. According to the financial aid office, I am already receiving the maximum amount allowed for both my loans through the school. My mom tried to get a parent plus loan but she does not qualify for one. I am looking to raise approximately $2000.00 to finish covering my books, meal plan and any other additional fees associated with my first semester. In the mean time, I am actively applying for additional financial aid and scholarships to rectify this shortage from happening in the future.
I would be willing to work off any loans over my Christmas or summer breaks when I come home if you desire, but only have about 3 weeks to come up with this money with the extension they gave me. Any financial help or fundraising/scholarship assistance would be greatly appreciated.
