Obama: Means 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. 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. However, President Obama, together with his new administration, is encouraging moms to make their education a priority. Obama scholarships will offer working mothers a great chance to improve their futures. While encouraging people of all ages to seek higher education, Obama is particularly targeting working moms with 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. The biggest incentive is the amount of money that is being offered for the Scholarships for Moms program. The maximum amount awarded through Pell grants is about $4,000 per student, but for mothers who apply to the program, that amount is increased to $5,000. 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. In addition, the administration hopes that equipping mothers to earn more money as working professionals will also be a stimulus to the economy. Moms can receive an education without the worry of the costs of school or having to pay back money for a loan. An added 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 can choose either to go 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. The government's Scholarships for Moms program is a comprehensive attempt to get mothers 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 no longer needs to be an unobtainable goal or an unfulfilled wish. The Scholarships for Moms program is intended to create a brighter future for mothers and their children.
