Obama College Scholarships For Single Working Moms

in Grant

Being a single mom is hard enough, considering all the bills you have to pay, the food you need buy and the gas that you must put into your car. Debt is a harsh reality for most families these days, particularly for single parents.

So when it comes to going to college, most moms simply brush it aside as a far off dream, or even an impossibility. But Obama college scholarships for single working moms can turn this impossible dream into a reality for you.

What It's All About

The Obama scholarships are really grants and it is known as the Pell Grant. This is financial assistance that has been available for some time, but Obama recently increased the amount to over $5000. And he is really encouraging mothers in particular to go back to school.

There is no doubt that this money would come in handy for any mom that is struggling with finances. If you already have a part time or full time job, you can still get the grant. You simply have to apply.

What If I Don't Get the Pell Grant?

Not everyone who applies for the Pell Grant will get it, that is just the harsh reality. There are just not enough grants to go around and many moms just like you do apply for it.

But there are some great alternatives, some are even better in that they give you MORE money than the Pell Grant does.

You can apply for scholarships online. Some are catering especially for moms, and others are more general. Some require some specific merit achievements, others are run by businesses and given to students who are studying in their industry.

Apply for Many Scholarships

After applying for Obama scholarships for single working moms, take a look around the internet and sign up for other opportunities. The more the better: it gives you a better chance of getting the money for your education that NEVER has to be repaid.
