College Scholarships and Grants for Single Mothers

In addition to childrearing, household responsibilities, and providing for the family, single mothers multitask in their responsibilities and attending college may seem like an impossible feat. According to Raise the Nation, an organization dedicated to helping single mothers wanting to continue their education by finding money for college, nearly 38 percent of single mothers live at or below the poverty level. Those with at least a bachelor’s degree are five times less likely to find themselves in dire financial states.

With little finances at their disposal, many single mothers critically need financial aid. Luckily, numerous scholarship providers recognize that single parents need assistance if they are to pay for school. That is why many college scholarships and grants have been created specifically to help single mothers afford a post-secondary education. To help single mothers, scholarship providers are making it possible for them to create a more secure financial future for themselves and their children.

Take a look at the following scholarship opportunities for single mothers. If you would like additional scholarship information regarding programs based on single-parent status as well as other criteria, try conducting a free college scholarship search at Scholarships.com.
