eLearners.com, a web resource of EducationDynamics, has announced that its advocacy campaign “Project Working Mom: Putting Education to Work” has received more than 50,000 online education scholarship applicants. As part of the campaign, eLearners.com, in collaboration with American InterContinental University, DeVry University and Walden University, will give away at least $2 million in full-ride scholarships to working moms to further their education and enrich their lives. The high interest in this campaign illustrates the importance of education to working moms across America. “50,000 entries is a number that makes you do a double-take. We knew when we started this campaign that we were addressing a real crisis, but we had no idea how significant,” said Terrence Thomas, Chief Marketing Officer for eLearners.com. “We are receiving tens of thousands of passionate and heart-wrenching essays from working women who see online education as the stepping stone to a better life for themselves and their children.”
