- Do you feel like your life somehow was put on-hold the day you became a mother? Do you wish to finish your education even if you know you can not afford it right now?
- Do you constantly feel you could achieve so much more and earn a lot more if you only had a degree?
- Do you often wish you can both be a successful career woman, as well?
- Do you wish you had the means to provide for your child and complete college at the same time?
Well, I’ve got news for you, you can stop tormenting yourself with those feelings and thoughts. There is a way, in fact, there’s more than one way to help you. Single moms who can’t afford to finish their education because all their money is needed to support herself and her child have an alternative. That is, scholarships for single moms like you!
Yes, there are scholarships available to help you finish your education. But just make sure it is a reliable source and steer clear of scams like the Obama grant. On a lighter note, various private and government groups cater to people who need financial aid especially when it comes to education. To aid single mothers among other things is one of the objectives of these groups. To name a few:
The Jeanette Rankin Foundation Scholarship Program
This program was made in honor of an incredible woman to help adult women who have financial difficulties, it provides scholarships for single moms returning to school. They are all about empowering women and so they provide more than college scholarships, to know more please go here: http://www.rankinfoundation.org/
Patsy Takemoto Mink Education Foundation for Low-Income Women and Children
For 2011, this Foundation is dedicated to help women with children who want to complete education or get training. This organization helps these women not only achieve personal success but improve the living circumstances of her children.
Women’s Opportunity Awards
This is a private organization helping women and children. They offer assistance in the form of scholarships. This is given by Soroptimist whose greatest desire is to give a better life for women and children through the provision of resources that will help improve their education, skills and job opportunities.
Indeed, there are quite a number of aid resources for single parents out there. I’ve only just named a few. I know it sounds amazing that there are private organizations helping families like yours but they are real.
