The other day I overheard a woman complaining about being tired. She had just ended another shift at work and was dog tired. She talked about her kids at home and, though she tried to be brave, I could tell she was miserable. She had been in college last semester but was now working two jobs to make ends meet. She told her friend she was going to go back to school because she just couldn’t see killing herself like this for the rest of her life.
This young woman is like many single mothers out there who are working two and three jobs to make ends meet. She is like the millions of moms who work for pennies just to keep food on the table.
I have many single mom friends who struggle to pay the bills, avoid calls from the collectors, and cry every night because she can’t buy her child new shoes.
She dreams of going to college to start or complete her degree. She dreams of working just one job that will pay all the bills and have enough left over for a little nest egg. She dreams of giving her children everything they need and most of what they want.
I was this single mom too. After I had my second child I was terrified of forever having to work at dead end jobs and making a couple of dollars over minimum wage.
The thought of being on government assistance until my children left home was even more sickening. I knew the people who processed my applications for housing, food stamps, and Medicaid were happy to make me miserable and follow the hundreds or rules that required them to pry into every area of my life. Short of doing a full body search, they would strip me of every ounce of dignity I had.
Like the young woman on the train, my only option at the time was to go back to college and get the training I needed to enter the professional world and get paid the money I needed to take care of my two young children.
Working myself to death was no longer an option. I could no longer avoid the harsh reality I faced as an uneducated single mom. Sure, I could make a way to survive and live each day for the next dollar. I could be one paycheck away from disaster and homelessness.
Going to college was my only hope, so I packed my bags and moved to a new city. I enrolled in a program that would lead to a degree in 18 months.
I applied for financial aid and grants to pay for my education. I used other people’s money to finance my education and you can too!
We’ve all heard about the grants and scholarships out there for people to go to college but without good research skills it seems impossible to find that money.
If you are not fresh out of high school it seems there is no money for the rest of us. It seems impossible to get an education without taking out thousands of dollars in loans.
But there are options for adults returning to college and single moms who want to make a better life for their children. With a lot of digging and research I have found grants and scholarships for single moms.
I want to share this information with you so you will not have to struggle like I did. I don’t want you to be saddled with a huge debt load when you are finished with college.

It will also give you information about choosing the right college, the best career, and best of all, balancing it all.

I got several emails the other day from people who read The Single Mom Grant Guide and they said I could share them with you:
I found this book to be a quick and interesting read, with great resources, questions, tips and tricks to navigate you through trying to go through what can seem like an impossible task. Although this book is geared towards single moms, it has information and resources that are valuable to any college grant seeker. There are more options than you think out there, and this book will help you find them. I’m definitely recommending this book to everyone!
I want to first thank you from one single mother to another for taking the time to put together a guide that’s so helpful. I myself made the choice last year to go back to college. I’m at the point where I’m so tired of killing myself working two full-time jobs to make ends meet. In making the decision to go back to school. I also had to cut back my hours taking a serious pay cut. I’ve had to make a lot of sacrifices, but in the end I know it will all pay off when I have my nursing degree.
In reading the guide it made me take a look at even more things I could sacrifice to keep a float while I’m in school. The volumes of information provided was awesome. Even made me realize I need to swallow my pride and receive some government assistance, especially if I can qualify taking the burden off me some financially. It was also surprising to see the number of different scholarships. I have applied and received a couple when I first enrolled in school. I’m definitely going to take advantage of the list and apply to as many as I can.
