I am a 57 yr old laid off 4 yrs ago from a job as a product designer/inventor/problem

I am a 57 yr old laid off 4 yrs ago from a job as a product designer/inventor/problem solver/engineer, designing wheelchairs for handicap children, for over 22 yrs! But with a out dated education I cant get the same type of employment - product designing! I cant afford to go back to school for improving my last career or starting a new one.
I have many new ideas/designs/inventions I want to sell/licence off or try to do the marketing/manufacturing myself, but with three very part time temporary jobs and trying support my son through school(so he doesn't end up like me!), its hard enough to keep a roof over our head! I need to find some help getting my feet back on the ground with enough support/money to either get my education/career back on track with a good job or start a business selling my inventions/ideas!
I have work every kind of part time job imaginable, and with all my arthritis physical work is getting very hard:( I have lots to offer with my creative mind, but most companies will not give you the time of day with out some type of degree, training or certificate!
I just need my prayers answered I guess?
Thank You!

I am the first in my family (from the innercity) to attend college and due to the economy and lack of corporate connections, I have gone years in a retail industry. I got into a top MBA program and desperately need funding so that I can continue my start up non profit for youth empowerment. I also would like a real career. If you are willing to invest in me and the future of our youth, please contact me. Do not hesitate. Thank you.

FAFSA Federal student Aid
https://fafsa.ed.gov/
www.fafsa-application.com/‎

Apply now or soon every State has Application deadlines. You will need this past years tax statements from you or your parents who ever works in the home you are living like a husband. Sometimes you will need to have the forms sent from the Tax office directly to them so start early. The people that don't get aid are those that procrastinate in doing everything involved.
If you don't work or are not a dependent you fill out the form differently.
Read all the rules. Local cheaper schools you might get full financial Aid for your studies

Yes, have you tried the websites cappex.com or fastweb.com they provide hundreds if not thousands of scholarships that can help with your education and even your children when the time comes for them to go.
