school financial aid, Money assistance: I am in serious need of aid. I am in school currently trying to finish

I am in serious need of aid. I am in school currently trying to finish my BA for digital design and animation. The problem is I've maxed my loans and pell grants (and my school won't take anything else besides federal loans and pell or scholarships which are a gamble and take too long to get). I currently need about $4,000 to pay for the out of pocket balance of my education. If I can't pay this I'll probably have to drop up and not finish my degree which is awful because I only need 16 more credits to graduate in the Spring (2013) (so I need this money paid in full by that time in March).

167 credits and $56,000 already in federal loans for my degree so far and I hit this roadblock right at the very end. Not only that but to add insult to injury my grandma just died on 12/12/12. She wanted more than anything to see me graduate. I had been taking care of her almost exclusively during her final year battling cancer along with trying to keep up and finish school. Now in honor of her memory I need to finish and graduate in the spring.

The problem is I don't qualify for any additional grants, scholarships are pretty much useless as they take too long and I may not get anything for my efforts (when I started my education 4 years ago I was a scholarship filling out machine, doing a dozen a week and never got a single penny for my efforts so about half-way in I gave up on wasting my time on scholarships), and all my loans are maxed, the grants I do qualify for through my school are maxed and I'm poor as dirt (I have no job) and facing $4,000 to finish my degree that I just don't have and no one I know has any money either (family is broke, and friends are in their own student financial aid situations).

I need suggestions, assistance, anything. I'd usually be too proud based on how I was raised to ask but I've gotten desperate. I want to stay in school, I want to finish these last 16 credits, I NEED to graduate. If I can't get my degree I'm still faced with that $56,000 in loans anyways and I won't have a degree to try to get a decent paying job to help pay them back so I'm in even bigger financial hardship.

I'll even work to get the money needed. I'm nearly finished with my degree so I'm quite good at my field of graphic and web design and animation. I also have other skills such as costume making, prop building, writing, and sculpting. I can also provide skills such as cooking and cleaning (which I'm very adapt at), babysitting, house-sitting, pet-sitting, and providing company and running errands for the elderly (good at this since I cared for my grandma for the past 5 years).

Any information or assistance is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

I need to arrange US$ 2000 within 24 hours to save my family’s life, I am a research scientist & have been into business for 20 years but accidentally got bankrupted and lost my life, during the last one year we’ve been in trouble but finally found a job overseas. Unfortunately it will take about two months to receive the first income, and I have no way to pass the gap. I need to have a short term loan of US$ 2000, for 3 months, whoever can help me with any amount through the PayPal, I promise to pay it back within 3 months to the same PayPal account. Unfortunately I have nothing to secure the amount other than my word. We are really in critical situation and your co-operation will save our life.
