The new Obama administration has made a commitment to assist single moms to return to school. It seems however that most mothers do not realize that Obama’s ‘Moms Return to School’ Government Grant Scholarship even exists! That is a shame as there are so many benefits to be had with this opportunity.
Even though the economy is not great at the moment you should not let that deter you from going to college – even if you are a mom!
The economy always comes back strong and when it does, your college qualifications will put you in a great position when you are finding work. You will have skills that employers want and you won’t have a problem finding a job you love and one that pays well.
Federal Pell Grants
The Federal Pell Grants were one of the first points of call for Obama when he became President. He has increased the amount of the grant for low income students. The amount is now $5100 and it used to be $4050 – and he may raise it more in the near future. This is great news for moms who wish to go to college and can’t afford to pay for it.
How to Apply
First you should find a college that has the program you want to do. Then simply fill out the deferral FAFSA form and submit it.
Studying Moms Get Tax Benefits
Thanks to The American Opportunity Tax Credit program you will get your first $4000 of education fees for nothing. As a mom this is going to take a great weight off your shoulders.
Online Study Grants
If you choose to study via online education then you can still apply for the Obama Moms Scholarship. There is no doubt that studying with online education is the best choice for most busy moms who prefer not to leave their kids to go off to college.
If you feel that the Obama ‘Moms Return to School’ Government Grant Scholarship is not suitable for you then do not worry: there are certainly other scholarships that you can apply for so that you can get the money you need to go to college.
