Do You Dream Of Going To College?

By Bryan Nomac

If you’re a single mother, and you would like to go back to college, now is the best time you’ve ever had to go back for that degree you’ve always wanted. There are many women who have the ability to get over a 4.0 with little study and you may be one of those people. College can be tough, but getting money for college should not be this way.

For most older folk returning to college, the most pressing question (aside from finding the time) is finding the money to pay for it all. Getting your degree is a wonderful aspiration, but if you can’t afford to do it in the first place, why worry about finding the time? In the past, it was true that most (if not all) scholarships were reserved for students with outstanding academic records. No more — today, there are numerous grants and scholarships that are based not on merit but on economic need and a variety of other criteria. There are, in fact, so many that an entire industry has spring up to help prospective college students to find cash for college.

Private companies do this every semester with lots of single moms. They give away millions of dollars every year to tons of single moms going back to school. This is because the government is also doing this, and is paying any company that does this, as well. Thus, they give you money, and the government gives them money. That’s why they are doing this. So, now that you can see why people would give you money, there’s no excuse for going out there and pursuing that scholarship or grant you have in mind. If you are a single mother, then you are most likely going to qualify for it, and get it.

There are a surprising amount of programs that can help you get through college financially these days. Both government programs and corporate scholarships can be found by simple we searches using your favorite search engine. The majority of these programs fall into one of three categories: Academic, Athletic, and Other. Unless you’re a closet Olympian, the Athletic scholarships are probably out. Also, unless you were a straight A student, many of the Academic programs are also out. That leaves Other. There are hundreds, if not thousands, of programs that fall into this category — and many of these are specifically for older folk returning to college after a few years in the workforce.

The bottom line is, if you are no longer “just out of high school” — and especially if you are a mother with dependent children — it makes sense to search out every opportunity to get help to pay for your terrific decision to return to school.
