I'm from a low-income family but I really want to go to a good college to make a lot of people proud of me and myself but I have no idea how I'm going to pay for everything for college so any idea would be helpful

You could apply for scholarships. Because you are from a low-income family, colleges will be willing to help you out and you could apply for federal scholarships too.

Apply to schools that meet 100% demonstrated need. They are usually top schools in the country. If you have good stats, try applying to all need-aware and need-blind colleges. You might not know.

You can consider Liberal Arts Colleges too. They tend to be quite generous to excellent candidates, but the top 20 LACs are very selective, so you may want to look at those below top20.

If you are a resident or citizen of the US, apply for scholarships. Eg. The Jack Kent Cooke Foundation’s scholarship programs

You can get scholarship notifications if you join the A2C discord server.
