April 8, 2018 – Iota Sweethearts, Inc. (ISI) is pleased to announce it’s newest 2018 scholarship initiative, the ISI M.O.M Scholarship, in which applications are currently available.
The ISI M.O.M (which is an acronym meaning “Motivating Our Mothers”) Scholarship was created by the organization’s National Scholarship Committee with the intentions to uplift and empower single mothers in the community by providing financial assistance for their educational journey. Committee Chairperson Bridgette Cofield believes from experience that this initiative is beneficial to developing the community in which ISI serves. As a single mother and current student she relates to the challenges single mothers face stating, “I am a single mother who has, and is pursuing higher education and it’s hard.
“So many mothers struggle just to get by day to day, and if we can assist them on their educational journey to provide a better life for their children, then we should. It’s our duty as an organization to encourage, empower, uplift, and motivate the mothers in our communities, as well as in this organization towards success.”
The scholarship is open to all single mothers actively pursing their Associates or Bachelors degree at an accredited two-year or four-year institution. Applications for the scholarship can be found on the ISI national website (http://www.iotasweetheartsinc14.com/i-s-i-national-scholarship) and must be submitted (or postmarked) no later than April 20, 2018. Two awards will be given.
