Obama Scholarships For Mothers Pave The Way

Author : Marlon Jackson

The economy may be in a slump, but it’s still smart to invest in your future. This is sage advice for mothers in particular. The job sectors that are expected to rise will have many positions available that qualified workers can fill.

It should be no surprise that communications and technology are areas that are steadily rising in importance. So many of our daily tasks are made possible by digital, wireless and other technology. There are sizable teams that are needed to produce these tools as well as people to provide assistance in using them. Several projections rank computer software engineering as one of the professions that is expected to rise greatly in the next five years. Analysts for network systems and data communications are also expected to be important careers.

Health and medicine is another job area that is always in high demand. The careers in healthcare are much more varied than the traditional jobs with which people are familiar. Occupational and physical therapists are important as well as their assistants. Mental health counselors are also expected to be in increased demand. Several professions, like some forms of counseling, require only specialized coursework rather than a medical degree.

Job growth and opportunity is lagging now, but expectations for the future are high. A number of industries and service areas could see growth in the rebounding economy. All of the jobs in these growing areas will require the proper education. If you're a mom reading this, the chance hasn't passed you by to get the proper education for one of these careers. Moms of all kinds can benefit from the Scholarships for Moms program started by President Obama. The government hopes to entice more moms to go back to school with the incentive of earning a $5,000 award. Now moms who want to advance their education can afford to get the degrees they want and need.

The education grants for moms endorsed by President Obama are a small part of helping women take care of their families. At 2-year and 4-year schools alike there are plenty of amazing educational opportunities. If you’re a mother who is thinking of going to school, you should look around to see what you can do.
