Many colleges are equipped with resources to help support the education of single mothers. If you are on of those and wish to get into higher education, there are certain procedures for you to follow. There are certain forms you need to fill in to help the finance department of your university or college make an assessment of your situation. You are often required to provide full details of your income and expenses. You can then qualify for grants to finance your education and also your living expenses can be covered if the college is left with more funds.
