This list of real scholarships for single moms are there for the taking, if you fit the requirements and apply. Having good grades in highschool and/or college, I won’t lie, can go a looong way to improve your chances to win a scholarship.
But there’s also another element considered: your impact on your community and your ambitions.
EVERY eligible student will receive at least SOME grant funding if they qualify.
The maximum amount given out per year as of 2015 is $5,730.
If you can prove you have or you currently are making an impact in your community (volunteering, working on food shelters, helping kids) and your education ambitions ultimately are to achieve an education so you can give back to the community (social worker, teacher, counceller, psychologist — some field that can benefit the community in some way), then you drastically increase your chances of landing a scholarship.
