Female students over 30 can pay for college with this $2,500 scholarship

Not every student going to college today has the typical college-going age. With the advent of distance learning which has now morphed into online education, many non-traditional students have taken the plunge they never thought they will and applied for a degree with an online college.

Online college classes are widely available these days, and non-traditional students are taking advantage of that at full force. And scholarships supporting their courageous endeavors have started to pop-up too.

It’s no secret that college is very expensive today, and distance learning is not really the exception here. While some online college classes might be a bit more affordable than on-campus one, not all are.

Actually, most online college programs are offered at fees comparable to the ones available at traditional universities. Which is why there are many distance learning students out there that are in dire need of funding. Especially non-traditional students.

Even if you have a job, it’s highly unlikely that your income will be able to cover the high fees of your online college program. Which is why you will probably need help. And scholarship programs can get you the help you need.

Start searching for grants and use your unique qualities when doing so. For example, if you’re a single mother who is studying with an education degree, make sure you include that in your search. It will narrow down some scholarships for you and maximize your chances of getting funding.

There are many general scholarships that you could apply for, but you should also try digging out those that are targeting students just like you. For example, if you’re over 30, you should, of course try and see if there are any funding programs available for so-called mature students.

Below you’ll find an example of exactly what we mean. It’s called the Worthy Women’s Professional Studies Scholarship and as the title indicates it’s open for female applicants who are in need of financial help to pay for their studies.

Note that you have to be over 30 in order to apply and be an undergraduate or graduate student at the moment of applying.

In order to apply, eligible candidates must fill out the application form on the Worthy.com website, as well as write a creative essay based on one three major topics that are to be found on the scholarship’s page.

For example, you could try answering the following question in your article:

In what ways going back to school will empower you to make a positive impact in your community?”

Keep in mind that the essay must be between 300 to 500 words.

The Scholarship program awards three prizes. The first one is worth $2,500, the second one $1,500, and the third one $1,000.

Interested parties have until November 26, 2018 to apply for the grant. All documents have to submitted online.

So if you’re a woman over 30 who is trying to pay for her online college classes, you should definitely take a look at this scholarship right here. It’s quite easy to apply-to, compared to other funding programs out there.

  • Hello,am Evans Baraka Ngala,an orphan from Kenya requesting for bursary to undertake a bachelor\’s degree in Early child Education at Mt Kenya University

  • Hello there,

    I am Francis Barnaba, paternal uncle to Josephine Angelo, a South Sudanese. I am the guardian of Josephine. I am a Catholic Priest from South Sudan, but currently working in Tanzania.
    Please, I am appealing to your good will and generous consideration! Josephine is an orphan. She is 24 years old. She finished her Secondary School in 2016, from Juba, Technical School. She performed very highly, in her National Examinations, in Technical subjects, which included:
    1. Workshop/Practicum = 79%
    2. Building = 95%
    3. Civil Engineering = 85%
    4. Physics = 78%
    5. Additional Mathematics = 58%
    Now, currently, there are no Technical Colleges or Institutions in South Sudan. So, I was advised to take her to Uganda, where there are a number Technical Institutes and Colleges. I was in Uganda, in February, 2019, to go and find out an institution or College, where they can admit this young lady. I found a number of Colleges, including Universities. Now, the only problem I face, is the issue of Scholarship or sponsorship! I have no means of supporting her financially, because I am a priest! I do not have money!
    Therefore, I writing to you, if you could consider supporting this girl, with a scholarship! Thank you very much!

    Josephine is my niece. She lost her father during the war in South Sudan. I am her guardian. She has 3 more younger siblings, whom I am also trying to support. But because of my status, I can only do very little, especially, in terms of their education! If you could support for me Josephine, even the heavens will count your good deeds! I wish you all a happy and blessed Easter!
