Scholarships For Single Moms


As a once single mother myself, I know exactly how hard it is to juggle work, education, and children at the same time. I had two young children infant and three years old, I was working full time and attending college, all the while raising my two children on my own. Sounds tough donít it. Well it was, it was not easy by any means. However, I knew that a college education was the only way I was going to manage raising children on my own. Scholarships for single moms certainly helped out a lot. Just because you are a single mom, does not mean you cannot further your education and enter your chosen career field. However, it might mean that affording higher education is not a probability at the moment.

Therefore, you will want to look into scholarships for single moms. There are a wide variety of scholarships available specifically for single mothers looking to attend a college or university. The trouble is finding them, the internet can help you in that area, as well as the financial counselor at the academic institution.

Some scholarships for single moms include the Raise the Nation Scholarship for Continuing Education. Raise the Nation is a completely non-profit organization that works to provide scholarships and grants to single moms. The scholarship for continuing education is specifically for single moms who are looking to obtain a higher education, but have run out of resources. Especially if they have been denied other assistance and grants.

Other scholarships for single moms include the Womenís Opportunity Award from Soroptimist International of the Americas. This program is specifically for single mothers and women looking to improve their lives by furthering their education. The award can be used for tuition, textbooks, transportation, and childcare. There are awards from $3,000 to $5,000. In addition, upon receipt of the award, every person receiving the award immediately becomes eligible for a finalist award of $10,000.

The Soroptimist award is available for any women able to demonstrate proof of being the head of household within their families, providing the bulk of the support financially. Furthermore, they must also be currently attending a learning institution or accepted to one, in order to qualify. Each women must posses a need financially, not have earned any previous degree, and reside in any one of the nineteen territories and countries within the member areas.
