Scholarships Through Obama's New Education Plan

Increasing divorce rate in America has resulted in a large population of single moms who have to take care of the babies and have to work hard to pay the bills. Every single mother would like to have a good standard of living for themselves and their children but they are constrained by their responsibilities, lack of financial aid and time. If you are a single mom and do not have financial capability to sponsor your studies after all the household expenses, them President Obama's Scholarship for Mothers program is something that you should be looking in to.
This program is targeted mostly on single moms but individuals with low income can also avail this opportunity to complete their graduation. You just need to submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form and wait for your selection to come through. To apply for the scholarship you need to select a college and then confirm with them that they are teaching the course you want to study. Once that is confirmed filling out the FAFSA will complete the procedure to avail the grant.
The "Federal Pell Grant" amount has been increased to five thousand one hundred dollars and the first four thousand dollars are not taxable as per the "American opportunity Tax Program". The good thing about this grant is that you do not have to pay it back; it's a financial aid to the people from the government.
With this program the student can choose to attend regular classes or attend online classes. This way you can take care of the babies and attend classes from your home. The mothers program provides financial aid and flexibility to attend classes. So it is up to you to take advantage of this excellent opportunity to get the education you need to get a better job and better comfort for your kids.
