Displaced Homemaker Scholarship
When family responsibilities become a pressing concern for many, educations in their life takes a back seat. The Displaced Homemaker Scholarship is for such individuals who still have the urge to complete their college education. This scholarship is for older students who are returning to college after raising their children.
The scholarship amount is $ 1,500. The amount will be disbursed in fall and spring. The $ 750 will be disbursed directly to the college for fall semester. But for spring the pending disbursement will depend on your fall semester progress.
