Last Updated:

This video provides a summarized overview of how you can find college grants to fund your education. You need a college degree or some form of higher education to get a good job to support your family. Most single mothers do not have enough money to attend college, which creates a barrier to a better, higher paying job & a better life. Here’s how to find college grants for single mothers.

i) Apply for federal student aid by filling out the FAFSA form. It can be downloaded & printed from


ii) FAFSA uses your taxable income & other information to determine your eligibility for federal student aid. Since the FAFSA form is long & can be complicated, here’s a good resource that shows you how to fill it out.

iii) Applying for FAFSA automatically makes your application for federal student aid including the Federal Pell Grant, Stafford federal student loan & Campus based aid e.g. (Federal Work Study, Supplemental Education Opportunity Grant, Perkins Loan).

iv) Your college or university most likely has a website that has information on how to apply for scholarships/grants that pertain to that institution. Visit the higher education office of your local campus or this website to search for grants that pertain to your State & college.

v) Check with the financial aid office of your college to see a list of non-profit grant organizations that could help you. Examples of private college grants for women include the Jeanette Rankin Women’s Scholarship Fund, Linda Lael Miller Scholarship & the Business & Professional Women’s Scholarship Foundation.

vi) Do a search for scholarships & grants in your State on this website I didn’t even know this website existed until I viewed this video, now this website is having lots of pageviews thanks to me 🙂
