Scholarship for women pays for tuition, fees — and life's emergencies

Article here. Excerpt:

'To qualify for WEC grants, applicants must be unemployed or underemployed women who have had a significant break in their formal education. They may enroll, either part or full-time, in any educational curriculum, program or professional development opportunity that will lead to employment or improved employment.

A priority for the awards is to working mothers and those enrolled in nonprofit educational institutions. The grants are based on financial need, are renewable, and available to residents of Kalamazoo, Allegan, Barry, Calhoun, St. Joseph, and Van Buren Counties. Typical award amounts range from $500 to $3,000.

“This program helps women and their families reach their full potential," says Nancy Timmons, scholarship manager at the Kalamazoo Community Foundation. “Grants may be used to pay for tuition, fees, books, child care, transportation, and other educational expenses."'

In any case, an article on funds for single dads:
