Scholarship for Single Mother Students

We are happy to inform you that there are emergency funds available to single mother students this semester through the Mapping Opportunities for Single Parents (formerly MOMs) Program.

The WNY Women’s Foundation Emergency Scholarship was designed to address unexpected financial hardships faced by low income, single mothers who attend NCCC. Emergency Scholarships are not intended to resolve problems that are widespread among students (such as a change in tuition, fees, housing costs, etc.). Scholarships are designed for unexpected emergency situations that are unique to the individual applicant.  The expectation is that this scholarship will resolve the problem and that the student will persist to completion in her courses.
