Barack Obama, President of The United States has recently come up with a new plan which aims at providing free education for single mothers. The U.S. latest launched scholarship program has increased the grants for American mothers to acquire a higher education.
The audacious question still arises many struggling Americans. Why is our president lending out so much funds in grants when the whole world is suffering from recession? The objective behind this is no secret. Obama clearly understands that until people stop spending, it will not be possible to get out of the recession. To spend more, people need to earn more and to earn more, it is important to get a good job. In order to get on the higher end pay scale one must be an entrepreneurial or acquiring a higher education.
Presently in the U.S, majority of single mothers are not able to choose their career path because of day to day responsibilities over loading their plate. However, with new scholarship and school opportunities, Obama is bringing awareness to America on the necessity and importance of achieving a higher education. This will encourage them to go back to college. Lack of funds, food, and healthy living situations is forcing the single parent s to make changes.
The procedure to apply for these Scholarships is not very difficult. Many feel it is an escapade rather than an application. It is similar to applying for any class at your local school or college. All you need to do is select a college and the course you wish to pursue. A long term four year degree is not necessary to get ahead. Many local community colleges offer courses than can be completed in less than a year. Still the pay rate would offer you twice as much take home pay than having no education at all. It is a simple first step in life changing direction. Fill out a FASFA form. The application regarding which course you want to take should be given along with the form. If all requirements are met, Obama’s scholarship will provide you a 10,000 dollar award towards your education. This amount is quite sufficient for any individual. If you choose a program or a local community college, you will receive money back in your pocket. No I’m not saying millions, however at least $1000.00.
