Obama To Make Scholarships Available to Single Mothers

Article by Marlon Jackson

Having to take care of their families on their own, single, working mothers have perhaps the toughest job of all. For many moms, a wish or a goal that has to be put on hold in order to take care of other 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. Applied for through the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA, Pell grants are the most commonly applied for forms of aid for students going to college. To encourage more mothers to return to school, the Obama administration is now making some changes. The biggest incentive for the Scholarships for Moms program is in the amount of money being offered. $ 4000 per student is the maximum amount awarded through Pell grants, but that amount is increased to $ 5,000 for mothers who apply to the program. The purpose of these grants is to allow working moms to return to school and earn a degree. That in turn allows them to better provide for their families now and in the future. By equipping mothers to earn more money as working professionals, the administration also hopes that this will also stimulate the economy. Without worrying about the costs of school or having to pay back money for a loan, Moms can receive an education.

An additional great incentive for moms considering this program is that it applies to enrollment in nearly all types of higher education institution. Four-year universities are covered as well as smaller community colleges. You can choose either to go to a private school or a public one. For busy moms where staying on campus isn’t an option, online course study is offered. The government’s Scholarships for Moms program really is a comprehensive attempt to get eager mothers back into the classroom.

The Obama scholarship attempts to take the worry out of returning to school. In almost any area of interest working moms can earn a degree, so that they are fully equipped to provide for their families. An unfulfilled wish or an unobtainable goal no longer has to be higher education. The Scholarships for Moms program has been designed to help create a brighter future for mothers and their children.
