You have probably heard a lot of talk about single moms getting money to go back to school. This is true; there are several ways to pay for your college education. If you ever thought you want to go back to college, or go for the first time, there is no better time than now to go.
If you aren’t sure you need a degree, think again. Look at your job, are you happy with it? Are you happy with your pay? Are you in the career you always dreamed of? Do you have plenty of time to spend with your kids? Is your stress level low? If you answered yes to all of these, then you probably don’t need a degree. However, if you answered no to any of these, you might want to rethink getting a degree.
The first way is scholarships. Scholarships come in all shapes and forms and all have different qualifications. There are scholarships specifically designed toward single moms as well. Getting scholarships can be competitive, but don’t give up. Apply for as many as you can; there is no limit to how much money you can get.
Make a plan to apply for a certain number of scholarships every day. You never know what might come up, as new scholarships are added daily. Almost everyone can find at least one or two scholarships they qualify for. Read through the qualifications and really try to sell yourself; prove that you match what they are looking for. Scholarships can be competitive.
Statistics show that those who have a college degree get the best paying jobs. Think about it. If you want to be a doctor, lawyer, teacher, nurse, pharmacist, or whatever it is you want to be; you need a degree for that.
