Are you a mother looking all day after her home and kids or a single mother wanting to study further but simply don’t have the money to do it or time to go to a college? Have you ever wondered that would it be possible that someone granted you some aid to fulfill this dream and that too from the comfort of your homes with your kid’s right in front of you?
President Obama has made an increase in the Pell’s grant to ensure a scholarship for moms who want to get higher degrees but have not been able to do it so far because of varied compulsions and limitations, especially the financial ones. This is the Obama’s scholarships for moms’ program.
It is not at all complicated to apply for Obama’s Scholarships for Moms’ program. The application forms are absolutely free and there are no hidden charges. One the student applies or registers for it she simply becomes eligible for a $10000 grant. This aid can be asked for in parts with every year and also tax benefits can be enjoyed. The amount granted varies depending on what category, dependent or independent, the student declares herself to be. Also if there is a parent making certain amount of contribution towards the higher education (this is applicable in case of dependent mothers), the aid amount may again vary keeping in mind the exact requirement of the student. FASFA (Free Application for Federal student Aid) is the agency which grants this aid absolutely free of cost.
Here are some of the advantages listed of the Obama’s scholarships for moms’ program:
This grant is not a loan and therefore it does not have to be returned or paid back in any form.
There are a number of technical schools offering this degree. If the student is a single mother and finds it difficult to leave her kids and home, she can look for one of the many online colleges recognizing this program,
Obama has also asked educational institutions to make certain amount of contribution in certain cases once this grant is given to the student.
The grant ensures that tuition fees as well as cost of living while pursuing the higher studies is taken care of. There is no interest or fee charged whatsoever for taking this financial aid.
