Single Mother Grants

While you might have a difficult time locating college scholarship and grants especially for single moms, single mothers still have an abundance of choices as it’ll come to paying for online universities. College scholarship and grants include need-based scholarships which come from various money sources, from non-profit and corporate organizations to federal programs, and they don’t need to be paid back. Scholarships and grants for low-income households, women, and returning and adult students attending online colleges, all are made to assist in overcoming challenges which most single moms face. If you’re a single mom, you might be eligible for different types of grant, depending upon your situation.

Kinds of Single Mom Grants

Education Support Award

Patsy Takemoto Mink Education Foundation will award $3,000 grants to low-income moms who pursue a skills training plan, associate or vocational, online degree, or doctoral degree, master’s, or first bachelor’s degree.

Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant

This grant is a federal grant given to a low-income undergraduate student who attends online colleges that has “exceptional need” for educational financial help (i.e. the ones who have the lowest EFCs, or Expected Family Contributions, and who also are recipients of Federal Pell Grant). Awards that range between $100 to $4,000 per year.

Federal Pell Grant Program

Even though not just for single moms, Federal Pell Grants help the educational financial necessities of low-income undergraduate and specific post-baccalaureate students who attend online colleges. Quantities may go up to $5,550 that depend on financial necessity, prices to go to online universities, and student status (that is, part-time or full-time).

CalGrant Program

The CalGrant Program of California is a state program which offers financial help to low-income and disadvantaged people who attend online universities–and take family status into account. Awards of around $12,192 are offered to the ones who attend online degree programs to assist in paying for online degree costs at all qualifying California colleges, universities, or career/technical schools.

    • Hello,

      We do not have the authority to offer scholarships. Yet, what we know is that, in order to qualify for a single mother grant, you will need to verify that you are a single parent. You may also need to document your income and financial need by filing a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), particularly if you want to applying for a government-funded scholarship or grant.
