Stay at Home Mom Scholarships

If you’re a stay at home mom who is looking for scholarship options for college then you might have had a hard time finding anything that is suitable.

Unfortunately scholarships and grants are often limited to a select set of people and usually moms are not included! This is quite unfair, but truth be told there are certainly ways to get stay at home mom scholarships with little effort.

All mothers should be commended for having the will and determination to go to college whilst raising a family!

A scholarship can help you to balance motherhood and study at the same time.

It will also help you to be on track to start your career once you have finished your course.

There are so many reasons why mothers avoid going back to school. These include:

  • Being short on money
  • Being short on time
  • Having a lack of support

Most of the time this is all that is stopping moms from achieving their dreams!

Are these things stopping you from going to college? Money is probably your biggest worry but a scholarship is going to make it all possible for you.

Imagine starting your college degree knowing that the tuition fees are paid for?

Having this financial help at this important time is crucial if you are to concentrate on your studies without worrying about money.

    I am a stay at home mom and I am starting college at the Art Institute this upcoming Monday. My financial aid will only cover a portion of the tuition. I can t seem to find any other scholarships the web pages tell me what I’m going to apply for but not where, how, or when. Not quite sure how to do all this. I’m in need of help and advice ddesperately. I need to go to college to better provide for my son. How do I apply?

    Hi. I’m not exactly a stay-at home Mom. However, my mother wants to be able to go back to college and she is, so I’m asking this question on her behalf. She’d like to know whether or not getting a job would hurt her chances of earning scholarship money and how badly it would hurt those chances if she did decide to get a job anyway. If any of you could respond with feedback, I’d be very grateful. Thank you.

    I am a mother of 6 boys looking to qualify for this. I have already started going back to school and have two sons in school. I graduate in two years with a bachelors and I am still paying off student loans from 20 years ago. I have managed to stay out of debt this time until now. My 2nd oldest is starting college this fall and I will be forced to take out loans unless I qualify for something. I heard about this through my oldest and would like more information as I feel like I qualify.

    I came across this post about mothers going back to school, but I don’t quite understand the details of how to apply for it. I am about to turn 29 years old and was finally getting serious about going to college for my teaching degree in January of 2014 when I became pregnant with my first child. My daughter was born in October 2014 and then I ended up pregnant with twins that were born September of 2015. I still have the desire to go back to school for my teaching degree, but in order to try and generate some income while pursuing that degree I am interested in becoming a Certified Life Coach and starting my own business. My husband works 2 jobs but it is barely enough to get us by since the rapid growth in our family and I had to leave my job during my pregnancy with the twins. I just want to be able to help contribute financially as well as raise my 3 little angels, but we just do not have the funds to put toward me furthering my education right now to do so. I am trying to avoid any loans due to the amount of debt I already have, and I was unable to qualify for any government aid for the program I am interested in. I would love more information about the scholarship that’s discussed in this post or any others I can apply for. Thank you, and good luck to all of the other moms out there putting in the extra time and effort to make a better life for their families.
