Money seems to be the main reason that mothers can’t return back to school. If you are in that situation, rest assured that you are not alone. Many moms today find themselves in those same circumstances today.
However, it doesn’t have to be an impossible dream. In fact, under the changes made through the Obama administration, there are better grants and scholarships available for moms. Returning to school can be a very realistic goal for mothers.
Mothers of all types – single moms, working moms, handicapped moms, online moms, busy moms – can take advantage of these new opportunities. The United States government is doing everything it can right now to help these moms return to school and get the college degree they want and need.
There are many things to consider about going back to school. First of all, a scholarships and grants do not need to be repaid. This is money that is given to you specifically for your education. Also, this money does not just have to go for tuition. It can be used for other expenses related to your education. The Pell grant amount has also been increased to $5,500 which gives moms even more money for their educational needs. Also, this can all be done through online classes, allowing moms to stay home, take care of their children and get their degrees!
The Obama plan makes everyone a winner by giving moms the opportunity to get more education, thus get better jobs, which will enable them to pay their bills and also have the self-esteem to pursue the career choices they have always wanted.
