The story is all too common in neighborhoods and suburbs all across the country; parents wanting to go back to school but finding the funds and time just simply are not sufficient. Especially in situations where spouses are separated or divorced, being able to gather the money necessary to pay tuition costs in order to get a degree that will help earn a higher wage can seem like a perfect example of a ‘Catch-22’. Therefore, many businesses, companies, and non-profit organizations have established single mother scholarships specifically for those people who fit this profile. By providing the financial aid needed for going back to school for nursing, a master’s degree, or even a two year certificate, the options are plentiful and available for those who are willing to seek it out.
To be perfectly honest, the amount of jobs that can be enhanced or made better in terms of wages by going back to school lies in the 90-95 percent range. Just about any salary can change when one is more educated; something that high schools preach to young students that applies equally to adults as well! With adults going back to school, the social perception may be different, but the end game is the same; if not even better. By already having a job or having past experience in a field, being able to expand one’s resume with additional schooling can truly separate an application with real and tangible ambition and drive to succeed. So make a call to a community college or place of higher learning today and get on the path to success!
