Obama is Aiming To Introduce Scholarships for Single Mothers

Single working mothers have probably the hardest job of all, having to take care of their families all by themselves. A goal or a wish for many moms that has to be put on hold because of family responsibilities, is higher education. With his new administration, however, President Obama is encouraging moms to make their education a priority. Working mothers are being given a great chance to improve their futures by Obama scholarships. Obama, whilst encouraging people of all ages to seek higher education, is urging working moms in particular to participate in his Scholarships for Moms program. The Scholarships for Moms program will build on the federal government’s long-standing offer of Pell grants. Pell grants are the most commonly applied for forms of aid for students going to college, and are applied for through the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA. The Obama administration, to encourage more mothers to return to school, is now making some changes. For the Scholarships for Moms program, the biggest incentive is with the amount of money being offered. The maximum amount awarded through Pell grants is about $4,000 per student. That amount is increased to $5,000 for mothers who apply to the program. The aim of these grants is to allow working moms to return to school and earn a degree that allows them to better provide for their families now and in the future. The administration also envisages that in equipping mothers with skills to earn more money as working professionals will also stimulate the economy. Moms can receive an education without the worry of school costs or of repaying a loan. Another great incentive for moms in considering this program is that it applies to enrollment in almost any type of higher education institution. As well as smaller community colleges, four-year universities are covered as well. You can go to a private school or a public one. An option for busy moms who can’t stay on campus is to study through online courses. The government’s Scholarships for Moms program really is a comprehensive attempt which attempts to get eager mothers back into the classroom. The Obama scholarship basically takes a lot of the worry out of returning to school. Working moms can earn a degree in almost any area of interest so that they are fully equipped to provide for their families. Higher education no longer has to be an unfulfilled wish or an unobtainable goal. The Scholarships for Moms program was designed to help create a brighter future for mothers and their children.
