Wild, here are a few sites which I hope will be helpful:

-- -- This site was created by an individual, Mark Kantrowitz (sp?), rather than a corporation (or a loanshark, lol) and has received positive reviews in the mainstream press with respect to the information it contains.

-- -- The American Medical Student Association (AMSA) maintains this list of non-traditional funding source possibilities that may spark some creative searching at your end. You don't have to be a medical student to make use of this site, obviously, lol -- some really good info there.

-- -- Peterson's Education Center publishes helpful books and directories regarding aid of all types.

-- -- Although oriented to younger college students, there's still some excellent information here regarding traditional and non-traditional funding sources.

-- -- Higher Education Resource Center (HEIC). Although oriented to Boston, there's still a lot of excellent information here to look over related to funding your higher ed goals.

Hope this is helpful as a starting place at least.
