    "Wondermom Scholarship"
    Deadline:06/30/22
    Are you a single parent looking for help to accomplish your goals and dreams? Does being a role-model for your child/children inspire you to try your hardest in every walk of your life? We know this can be challenging for any parent, but even more so for those that are single parents. Whether you are a single mom or dad, it can be stressful trying to manage all the necessary requirements to be successful. At MyOrganicCompany, we would like to help and make one part of your life slightly more manageable with our scholarship! 

    Members of our staff have personally struggled with juggling life while being single parents, and together we voted to give back to our community. We know that students who are single parents have lower graduation rates and far more college debt on average (not to include that additional stress/anxiety from having to manage parenthood while studying and part-time or full-time jobs!). Based on data from a longitudinal study, "Of students seeking a bachelor’s degree, only about a fifth of students who are single parents will graduate with a bachelor’s degree within six years, compared with two-thirds of students who are not single parents."

    In fact, just simply growing up in a single family household can become an educational disadvantage. One study confirms the disadvantage, "Twelve percent of that group of teens from single-parent families had earned a college degree by the time they were 24, compared with 38 percent of those from two-parent families." This large difference is a hurdle we want to help overcome!

    Furthermore, a parent's education can strongly predict students’ educational attainment, based on how far in school their parents progressed. For example, increasing a mother’s years of education by 1 standard deviation, or 2.6 years, added about three-quarters of a year to children’s completed schooling, according to the study.

    With all that being said, we at MyOrganicCompany are devoted to giving back and helping single parents, so we can help bridge the gaps! With our scholarship, we are giving graduate and college students a chance to earn $2,000 towards their education!

    To be eligible for this scholarship, you must meet the requirements below:

     For the graduate scholarship - Must be currently enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate degree program at a 4-year, 2-year, vocational, or technical institution in the United States.

    For the high school senior scholarship - all applications submitted during the second application timeline and first application timeline of the following year will be reviewed. College acceptance and enrollment will be verified before awarding scholarships.

    Must be a US citizen or permanent legal resident. Must be a single parent or child of a single parent. All fields of study and GPAs will be considered.
