PWM has marked the fourth and most successful chapter of our scholarship initiative, which aims to support and inspire the educational goals of working parents across America. This project has made it possible for busy working moms to find financial resources to assist in their goals of returning to school. Additonally, the project has helped moms identify which degree may be right for them in going back to school and how to apply for educational scholarships, financial aid, and grants.
Project Working Mom has successfully elevated the issue of adult students’ needs to the level of national discourse. Thanks to Project Working Mom’s many inroads, we’re confident that community leaders and organizations will continue to address the barriers – time, money and confidence – that separate working parents from the higher education opportunities they need.
To date, 245 moms and dads received full-tuition scholarships for online degrees in their various fields. The awards granted through Project Working Mom are worth a combined total of 9 million dollars. And many of the recipients are already using their education to excel professionally.
