Survivors of domestic violence face a lot of challenges to regain their self-confidence and independence. One way to become self-reliant and independent is to earn a college degree. This may not seem financially feasible for some women, especially if they have children or don’t have a reliable source of income. But earning a scholarship may help them get on the right track. There are several scholarships available for survivors of abuse. They can provide some or all the funding to women who needs to earn a college degree and get back on their feet after being in an abusive relationship.
