#FortunateFriday: Single Mothers Scholarship Program

This #FortunateFriday, we will be launching our Single Mothers’ Scholarship program! We are so excited to be able to establish this scholarship program and are immensely proud of our team for coming up with this initiative, and working really hard to create a meaningful scholarship program. So if you are a single mother and are interested in undertaking a certificate or diploma level course with us and could benefit from a scholarship, or you know of someone who could benefit from this scholarship, please feel free to share this link with them and we’d love to hear from them!

The Single Mothers’ Scholarship Program was established by Dolph Business School to support eligible single mothers with the cost of the tuition fees and learning materials (such as workbooks and compulsory texts) of undergoing a certificate or diploma course with Dolph Business School.

We understand how challenging life can be for single mothers and at Dolph Business School, we want to be able to help. This scholarship is one of the ways we are able to help single mothers achieve better for themselves, and their child(ren).

We currently have provisions for 10 scholarships per year, however, we may award more than 10 scholarships per year as funds permit.
