What are some ways of obtain help with funding for a Private Pilots license?

I am a Civil Engineering student that can not stop thinking about flying. I joined a local branch of EAA and offered to volunteer my time there. I my question is does anyone know where i can get a private pilot scholarship.I live in the upper Midwest and resources here are scarce. I have a couple thousand set aside but that is not even close.
