Whether you are a single mom, a stay-at-home mom or a woman who perhaps never got a chance to go to school, now you can. President Obama has created a free scholarship program to help you. Many women end up planning to go to college, but often, life takes over, working becomes a necessity and dreams of school are left behind. Although the scholarship targets moms and women over 40 who have been hit particularly hard by the poor economy, it is open to all women who would like to take advantage of it.
