FRCC Foundation Has Scholarship Funds for Displaced Homemakers
The Front Range Community College Foundation has $40,000 in scholarship funds available for displaced homemakers.
Ryan McCoy, assistant director of the foundation, says a displaced homemaker is someone who has been dependent on another household member’s income and has lost that primary source of income. Displaced homemakers could be divorced, widowed, separated, married or unmarried, have a disabled spouse or caregiver, have an unemployed spouse, or other circumstance.
Half of the funds come from the JumpStart Scholarship fund administered by the Community College of Denver. The FRCC Foundation is matching the fund, bringing the total available to $40,000. Information about the scholarship is found here.
The scholarship is offered in partnership with the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment and is intended to return the displaced homemaker to the workforce.
