It was not only in old days that real moms, who stayed at home and looked after their homes were found but today also there are lots of stay at home moms. Most of them have even dropped their studies in order to look after their children and they are not able to find a good way of living because of that. President Obama has offered scholarships for moms especially designed for such moms to carry on their higher studies and make their lives better.
The only way to get a good job, a rewarding career and avoid cul-de-sac jobs is to improve your education level and qualification. But the most important hindrance here is the lack of fund because education, especially higher education is expensive on the whole. So you can choose from the different scholarships that are available for stay at home moms and it will be the best to decide upon the one especially designed for moms that stay at home rather than applying for common scholarships.
Scholarships are available for moms to study in any field whether it is maths, science, humanities or others. There is a different and great opportunity for African American Women i.e., The American Association of University Women’s Selected Professions Fellowships, which is prized at $ 12,000. Also there is The Margaret MacNamara Memorial Fund, which is accessible for women who are born before 1970.
Applying for any of the scholarships, you should keep in mind few points so that you get qualified for it:
1. Provide sufficient information about yourself and show positive attitude.
2. Apply for more than one scholarship so that any one of them is made accessible for you.
3. Don’t opt for those that only state the amount of money.
Keeping in mind these points you can apply for any scholarships for moms and try to get qualified for the one you want.
As a mother, I know how hard it is to go back to school so I did some research for you.
