The Huggable Supermom Scholarship

The Huggable SuperMom Scholarship

At Huggable, we know that being a new mother is not a walk in the park. With a million things on your to-do list, it’s hard to find time for yourself. For the single mothers among us, it is that much harder to make everything work as you get your little one off to the best start possible. For the Huggable Supermom Scholarship we focus on supporting single moms, children of single moms, or people whose lives have been impacted in positive ways by single moms. Put simply, the Huggable Supermom Scholarship is a student scholarship designed to support single mothers and those who support them and benefit from their love.

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. At Huggable, we believe that’s a cause -- and opportunity -- worth focusing on.

That is why we have created The Huggable Supermom Scholarship. With this program, our mission is to make things a little easier for single mothers and their loved ones. We are giving high school scholarship winners $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.
