Huggable Supermom Scholarship

The Huggable Supermom Scholarship is a student scholarship designed to support single mothers and those who support them and benefit from their love. According to the Institute for Women’s Policy research, 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. They 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. The Huggable Supermom Scholarship was established to make things a little easier for single mothers and their loved ones. High school scholarship winners will receive $1,000 toward the cost of pursuing their degrees. College scholarship winners receive $2,000 as well as a $1,000 gift certificate to Huggable for organic baby formula. 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 on who is ready now.
