If you are a mom and have been asked if you ever considered going back to school, you may have thought they were crazy for asking you such as thing. How can you go to school if there is no money left over after paying the bills?
But now our President is giving moms a chance to earn a college education by improving the Federal Pell Grant. Even though the Federal Pell Grant has been around for ages, it has not been available for moms like it is now. The limit for the grant has also been raised and is now $5100 instead of $4050. Not only can this money be for tuition and book fees but it can be used for other college related expenses such as housing. This is exactly what mothers have been waiting for so now is the time to take advantage of this opportunity.
The best part of this is that you do not have to spend your money (that you do not have) to pay for college. This is free money; just get your college education.
Who is approved?
No one is approved if they do not apply. But although the government has money, the funding is limited for this program. If the money is gone then you will lose your chance to win the scholarship money. You will never know unless you apply. You can be a single or married mother; you can also be a working mother or a stay at home mother. Although there is no guarantee, you need to apply to be considered at all. If the money is available and you apply, you have a chance.
You do not want to apply only to the Federal Pell Grant, there are other scholarships available and some do not have any applicants so you can be the first. The more scholarships you apply for, the better the chances you have of being approved for a scholarship that does not have to be paid back. So whether you are a single mother, married, working or a stay at home mother you can be approved but you have to apply. Take advantage now and go online to fill out the application form.
