United Way Provides Childcare Scholarships For Single Mothers in Virginia

Women From United Way

United Way of Greater Richmond and Petersburg has launched WomenRise, a scholarship program that provides financial assistance to help single moms cover the cost of childcare while they work toward a post-secondary degree or credential.

WomenRise is run by members of United Way’s local Women United giving community. Women United members lead this program by fundraising for scholarships, making scholarship decisions, planning events, and providing encouragement and support to WomenRise scholarship recipients.

The scholarships are usually awarded in August, and the applications are usually accepted up until May.
