Obama"s 2009 Scholarship For Moms Program Gives Mothers Up To $10,000 In Funds

If you are a single mom, I would be willing to bet that you have learned how to really stretch a dollar.  There are many things that you do without so that your children will have what they need.  Often, I am sure you find yourself saying, "No," when you would love to say yes to their wants.  A college education would provide you the skills and knowledge to compete for higher paying jobs, but you probably wonder how you would ever afford going to school.  The answer comes from Congress and the stimulus package in the form of government scholarships for moms.

These scholarships are designed especially for moms so that they can receive higher education. President Obama believes that all Americans are entitled to college or technical school. Because of this belief, he was adamant about the government scholarships being included in the stimulus package.  You may be eligible to receive up to $9,000.00 for the school year.

The great thing about these scholarships is that they are renewable and they will increase over the next few years. Government scholarships have been around for awhile in the form of Pell Grants. These grants are given to people based upon their income. As a single mom, you should have no trouble qualifying for the full scholarship.  In addition, you will never have to pay anything back because they are not like student loans!

With $9,000.00 you will easily be able to afford tuition and books at many colleges.  If you have money left over, you can use it for whatever you like. Perhaps you need a new laptop for your classes or your car needs some major work.  These are the types of things that you can use the money for.

Maybe you would love to go to school and the government scholarships appeal to you but you have no idea how you will find time to do it.  Well, you need to do what many single moms are already doing which is attending classes online.  There are many accredited universities that have full degree programs available totally online.  This is a convenient way to take your courses when you have to work as well.

You owe it to yourself and to your children to give a serious look at returning to college. With the government scholarships for moms, you cannot go wrong.
