Obama: Going To Establish Scholarships For Single Mothers

Having to take care of their families on their own, single, working mothers have perhaps the toughest job of all. For many moms higher education is only a wish or a goal that has to be put on hold in order to take care of other responsibilities. However, President Obama, together with his new administration, is encouraging moms to make their education a priority. Obama scholarships will give working mothers a great chance to improve their futures. 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. Building on The Scholarships for Moms program, is the federal government’s abiding 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. Now the Obama administration is making some changes to encourage more mothers to return to school. For the Scholarships for Moms program, the biggest incentive is with 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. These grants are intended to allow working moms to return to school and earn a degree. That will allow them to better provide for their families now and in the future. The administration also envisages that by equipping mothers with skills to earn more money as working professionals will also be a stimulus to the economy. Moms can receive an education without the worry of school costs or of repaying a loan. In addition, a great incentive for moms considering this program is that it applies to enrollment in nearly any type of higher education institution. Four-year university courses are covered as well as smaller community college courses. You have the choice of going to a private school or a public one. One option for busy moms who can’t stay on campus is to study through online courses. Basically the government’s Scholarships for Moms program is a comprehensive attempt to get mothers who are keen back into the classroom. The Obama scholarship attempts to take 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 doesn’t have to be an unfulfilled wish or an unobtainable goal any longer. The Scholarships for Moms program is designed to help create a brighter future for mothers and their children.
