Apply For Obama’s ‘Moms Return To School’ Scholarship

Obama’s ‘Moms Return To School’ grant (or scholarship) is also known as the Pell Grant. It has been around for a long time now, but Obama is really the first President for a while to actually focus on it and make it a priority for people to get this money.

Why get the Pell Grant or other financial aid for school?

Moms will benefit a lot from having money to put towards education.

Paying for college is hard work. Being a mom myself, I took that leap and decided to go back to school (and I’m so glad I did!) but I could not have done it without some financial assistance.

The Pell Grant could get you around $5000 to put towards your education.

Alternatives to the Obama Moms Return to School Grant
Whilst the President is doing a good job of encouraging and helping moms like us to return to school, not everyone will be eligible for the grant and not all eligible moms will get it – there are just too many applicants.

That is why you must look around for other scholarships that will deliver the money you need for school. Use it for your tuition fees, books, computer software or any other expense: as long as you use it to change your life for the better!

    This is sad, look at how people bash each other….. Over what?
    Their hope to return to school to have a better life? This is why our world is as cruel and corrupted today, people like you.
    It’s quite sad. No, it’s really sad.

    Just so we are all clear too, yes it is the pell grant.
    The difference is that now single parents, not just moms,
    Will receive a little bit more in the grant to help them out.
    So yes it was something already made, but he did bring it back and he did add a little reform to it.

    Besides that really the only thing you have better to do is sit on some website mad that other people want to take advantage of a better life for their children/themselves?
    Remember God doesn’t like ugly.
    So the uglier you want to be inside,
    The more Karma coming your way.

    I will like to get some more information about how to apply. I am a mother of two lovely children ages 8 and 2, I work full but my income is not enough to support my family. I did graduate with a B.A in psychology and some credit Nursing. I will like to complete my nursing degree but I have exhausted all my financial aid and I reall need help. I am also the first child out of my family to be achieving such a goal.

    it is difficult to be a mother and to not to have enough money to complete a college especially and to take care of our family. so therefore by the by the government giving support such as scholarships this help tremendously.

    Hello, I am a stay at home mom and have been going back to college after a time lapse of having my children. I am twenty five and am married with two kids. I just started the Occupational Therapy Assistant Program and I am so elated that I can help provide for my family in the future. Today as I sat down with my financial aid advisor and she told me my financial aid was cut over half I started to cry knowing I can’t afford the extra payments. My student loans were all maxed and we have no other means of money. I have worked so hard this far that I am scared my husband and I would be poor from the huge payment a month. We won’t be able to afford to put food on the table. I am at my last plee, Because pretty soon a decision has to be made to whether or not continue or forfeit; we simply can’t afford it. My dream has always been how my children’s future would be bright and I don’t want to let their opportunities fall because my husband and I live paycheck to paycheck. I still am paying medical bills from my oldest son who has asthma, it’s just all too much. Please I beg of you to help me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
