College Scholarships For Moms: Free Money for School

So you are a mom and you’ve decided that you want to go back to school, or finally attend college after years of thinking about it? Well you need to be sure that you are financially ready to go to school.

Getting an education at college can make a big impact on your budget but don’t let that stop you, because there ARE ways for moms to get money without resorting to expensive student loans. College scholarships for moms are the ultimate way to have your schooling paid for, without you having to pay it back.

Scholarships are granted to students and prospective college students. Some are awarded on merit, whilst others are given to ‘minority’ groups. Mothers are often considered a minority group and some scholarships are targeted specifically to them, so that you aren’t up against thousands of other people. This gives you a great chance of ‘winning’ the money.

Juggling your family’s needs with that of your schooling can be tough and as a mom you do not want to compromise on your family budget. There are many things to pay for in college, including:

– Tuition fees
– Books
– Travel
– Software and computers

You can literally spend thousands each year just on studying and related expenses. Having a scholarship will certainly take away this massive financial burden so that you can concentrate on your studies and not on money problems.

Whilst there are some government grants that are encouraging moms to go to school, these can be very hard to get and sometimes only consist of a couple of thousand dollars. It is important to find a scholarship that will provide as much money to you as possible.

It is therefore important that you can locate college scholarships for moms that meet your needs and your situation – one that can provide the best financial aid for your college studies and for your family.

    My name is Christina. I have been married for 11 years and have four children, ages 9, 7, 4 and 2. My husband is a master electrician. He has always dreamed of owning his own business but doesn’t have the schooling to support it. The company he works for has no work where we live and he has been working over 1,000 miles away and returning twice a month to see our family. I want to go to school and earn an MBA to make his dreams of owning a business come true but also so he can come home and work near his family again. Paying for plane tickets gets expensive and so we cannot afford for me to pursue this alone.

    Hello my name is Kayla I am 24 year old stay at home mom of three and unable to currently work due to the high cost of day cate I would be paying in to work. Since my eldest two children will be starting school pre k and kindergarten. I would love to go back to school! Before we had moved from our home state I had my CNA. I loved my work bit unfortunantly it expired due to troubling paper work to transfer/renew my certification. My friends and family believe I have a natural ability to help people. Due to the economy and cost to raise a family. It’s unfortunate that I do not have a dime for college. I’d love to further my education in nursing to secure my family financially and secure my children’s future. I would be greatful for any help I can get! Thank you, god bless!

    I only completed the 8th grade in 1994, I was married, and had a baby at the age of sixteen. Finishing high school did not seem important to me back then, and really hasn’t been bothersome to me that I did not graduate. But now my oldest son is a junior and about to graduate next year. When I was ordering his class ring a few months ago, it dawned on me that he was going to get something that I didn’t but could have and should have, so I took the GED test on Jan.29,2013 and I PASSED!I am so proud of myself it’s been nearly 20 years since I was in school, and I want to go to college but can’t afford it. I am married with four boys. PLEASE HELP!

    my name is Nicole I was recently accepted into UMA for a 10 month course on medical billing and coding. I have two children and this is an online school and it seems perfect for me even after I graduate I will be able to work from home but I do not have the money or the family support that I need to pursue schooling. is there any kind of help that I can get? I am NOT looking for completely free schooling I do realize I will have to pay something back but I need some kind of grant for single mothers or low-income mothersand I would also need help getting a computer. all the websites that I have checked are referring me to different schools but I am very interested in UMA and since I was already accepted I would like to stick to it. my online classes would start April 6th if I cannot attend this school because of financial difficulties I will be very devastated I need this for me and my children so we can have some stability in our lives and I would like to be a good role model for my children.
