Have any of us wondered about the life of a stay at home mother? She starts her day thinking about cooking, cleaning, running errands and her day just passes by in the same fashion. Even though she is at home, it is surprising to know that her entire day is occupied by her kids and family needs and she hardly has time for herself. Such a mother hardly has the time or money to think about education and thinks her life is in those four walls. The government has taken necessary steps to spread the light in the lives of these women and have come out with the idea of scholarships for stay at home mothers which aim at providing education with zero financial costs to the women.
The administration was distressed to find that most of the mothers lead a very low, uneducated life and took it upon himself to solve the program. He started the ‘Moms Return to School’ program which aims at providing the necessary financial backing for all those mothers who seriously consider returning to schools and colleges. The federal grants have improved so much that it can provide you the entire finances for your education, if your paperwork is approved. Federal Pell grants have also improved with the Presidents administration and have been hiked up from $4010 to $5100. Now, there is also the American Opportunity Tax Credit Program which tends to waive the $4000 initial fees for higher education for all the US citizens.
ELearners is a sincere online education centre which targets to provide education to the mothers. It has initiated the Project working Mom along with other universities like Ashford University, Everest University, Virginia College, Walden University, Capella University, Saint Leo University, Allied Schools and Ashworth College, and is aiming to start with 285 scholarships including full-tuitions for working and stay at home mothers. This actually sums up to $5 million scholarships for the mothers and they will be sent to study in the above-mentioned colleges and universities.
There are also various charitable institutions which are identifying the problem and providing financial aid to stay at home mothers like Jeannette Rankin Foundation Scholarships, The R.O.S.E. Fund Scholarship, Philanthropic Educational Organization (P.E.O.) Program for Continuing Education, Hispanic College Fund Scholarships and so on. Most of these scholarship programs identify the basic difficulty of the mothers to study on campus and hence provides the option of online education which means the time of your study hours is determined by you and hence it will not affect your family life.
With the changing times, it becomes the foremost criteria for every mother to acquire a certain degree or qualification to stand proud in this crowd and move ahead in life. Thanks to the various scholarships and financial aid available for stay at home mothers, this possibility is becoming a reality and a step which marks the progress of nation as well.
