President Obama believes in the importance of college education. In fact, he’s encouraging millions of Americans to go back to school and get a degree. Hardworking employees with minimum wage and single mothers included. It’s good that the President understands that while most people want to go back to school and graduate, they don’t have the financial means to do so. In fact, the president asked Congress to pass new legislation to increase federal grants for people who want to go back to college.
Pell Scholarships are defined as post-secondary government education scholarships sponsored by the US Department of Education. This is usually given based on financial need and requires no repayment. Yes, you don’t have to pay it back. It’s absolutely free!
So, who qualifies for the federal Pell grant? All from low-income families and full-time employees earning low or minimum wage. Said scholarship can earn them up to $15,000 per year to spend on tuition, books, fees, and other school-related expenses. That’s almost enough, if not enough, to get you through a year of college. Getting free money for your education means fewer or no chances of you having to rely on student loans just to get that college degree.
And what’s better news for single moms or married moms out there? Here’s what. The scholarship allows mothers to go back to school without having to quit their jobs or sacrifice time with their children. This is because the federal grant for online courses can be applied for. That means you can continue your studies from the comfort of your own home and on your own time. You don’t have to rack your brains about how to change everything — your career, your life, your family commitments, and your studies — and you end up wishing you could be in two places at once. With online courses, you can continue your studies after a day at work without having to leave your children. You can listen to an online lecture while waiting for dinner to be prepared, pause the video if necessary, and come back to it whenever possible. Really handy, isn’t it? So what are you waiting for? So apply today!! Take the chance for a better life and a better career!!
