At Little Bundle, we know that being a new mother isn’t a walk in the park. With a million things on your to-do list, it’s hard to find time for yourself. For the single mothers amongst us, it’s that much harder to make everything work as you get your little one off to the best start possible.
To help open up more scholarship opportunities for single moms, The Little Bundle Supermom Scholarship focuses on supporting single moms, children of single moms, or people whose lives have been impacted in positive ways by single moms. Put simply, the Little Bundle Supermom Scholarship is a student scholarship designed to support single mothers and those who support them and benefit from their love.
Why is this our focus?
The Institute for Women’s Policy reports that more than 11% of undergraduate students in the US are single mothers—that’s more than 2.1 million students. Of those single mothers in university, only 8% will complete their degrees—making them 6 times less likely to graduate than their peers.
Single mothers will also graduate with an average of nearly $30,000 in student debt, almost $5,000 more debt, on average, than their peers. However, single mothers who attain their Bachelor’s degree are 3 times more likely to live above the poverty level. They earn 62% more, translating to nearly $300k in additional income over the course of their career, on average.
Getting a degree is incredibly high-leverage for single mothers—and for those around them. The potential for long-term improvement in quality of life is enormous. At Little Bundle, we believe that’s a cause—and opportunity—worth focusing on.
That’s why we’ve created The Little Bundle Supermom Scholarship. With this program, our mission is to make things a little easier for single mothers and their loved ones.
With this scholarship, we’re awarding $1,000 every six months to a high schooler. Note: If you’re a college (undergraduate or graduate) student interested in this scholarship, view our Little Bundle Supermom Scholarship — College Award.
Scholarship winners will also receive a year of free high-quality, organic baby formula from Little Bundle. Not a mother right now? No problem—we make it easy for you to defer your year of free formula until you're ready, or to donate it to a friend or loved one who is ready now.
