Various Dates
The American Association for University Women recently reported that 53% of women have high student loan debt just one year after graduation, compared to 39% of men. Many women also face the added difficulties of trying to go to college for the first time later in life, returning to school after long gaps of time, and attaining a degree while being a single parent.

To help make college more accessible for them, college planning experts at OEDB.org developed two holistic financial aid guides specifically for women. It breaks down available grants, scholarships, and fellowships, along with useful tips and tricks. You can find them at: http://oedb.org/scholarships/women/ and http://oedb.org/single-mother-grant/
