For students with families of their own, here is a list of a few family-friendly colleges & universities that are more accommodating to welcome single parents to the campus.
The Pell Grant program is America’s largest student aid program that provides grants of up to $5,730 to the nation neediest students to attend college. And it does not need to be repaid.
For single mothers, higher education may seem like a far-fetched idea. Fortunately, there are plenty of options that make returning to school a reality — from grants and scholarships (free money), work-study (earned money) to federal loans (borrowed money).
With little finances at their disposal, single mothers need assistance if they are to pay for school. That is why FREE scholarships are available for “moms returning to school”.
When it’s time to pay for college, few students could afford without some form of education financing. Even for those who do receive student aid, the amount, in reality, is far less than “what is needed”.
For many African Americans, education is the only valid passport out of poverty but money plays a big role in decisions about where – or whether – to go to college. Lack of fund is often the primary reason why black students ain’t making it into college.
The Federal Work-Study (FWS) Program is a type of student aid that gives single-parent students — with little or no monetary resources, a way to earn money by doing part-time work on or off campus.
