Working Mom? Let these Stories Inspire You to Go Back to School!
If you’re a working mom and you’d like to go back to school, we have a great motivational message for you. Read the stories of J.K. Rowling (author of the Harry Potter books), Christy Turlington (supermodel), Margaret Tobin Brown (the real live “Unsinkable Molly Brown” who survived the sinking of the Titanic) and Wilma Rudolph (legendary Olympian and runner).
They are all working moms who went back to school – and you can do it too! We hope you will enjoy these empowering stories of famous women who returned to further their education while raising their children.
And after those stories inspire you, we have a suggestion . . .
Apply to win The StraighterLine Scholarship for Working Moms!
StraighterLine will be awarding a special scholarship for working mothers in honor of Mother’s Day, which is coming up on May 8th. It’s called The StraighterLine Scholarship for Working Moms, and it can be yours!
To apply, you need to be a working mother. You can work full-time, work part-time, or be a mother who is staying home to raise children. After all, who works harder than women who stay home with the kids?
It’s easy to enter to win. You only need to submit an essay describing what going back to school would mean for you and your family. You also need to supply a description of your job. (And remember, being a full-time mom counts as a job!)
A StraighterLine panel will judge all entries and the working mom with the most compelling essay will win a free “Freshman Year for $999” program - a $999 value that includes up to 10 StraighterLine courses.
Three runners-up will each receive a free one-month enrollment and one StraighterLine course free - a $138 value.
So, working mother, why not apply to win? StraighterLine has created these scholarships to honor you on Mother’s Day and to help you go back to school in the smart online way. Here’s your chance to be a great mother and a great student at the same time.
