The Divorced Moms Scholarship Program is a scholarship program available to children from divorced families who are enrolled to attend university or college in the fall and winter of 2021.
Divorced Moms value education and helping those in need. We understand that college can be a significant expense that can be hard for students to pay. Between housing, tuition, books, and school supplies, the cost of attending college can easily cost tens of thousands of dollars, if not more.
In an effort to make getting an education easier for students and their families, Divorced Moms is pleased to offer this yearly scholarship of $500.
We look forward to reading your submissions and helping the winners meet their educational goals.
