The Little Bundle Supermom Scholarship

At Little Bundle, we know that being a new mother isn’t 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 amongst us, it’s that much harder to make everything work as you get your little one off to the best start possible. For the Little Bundle 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 Little Bundle Supermom Scholarship is a student scholarship designed to support single mothers and those who support them and benefit from their love.

Why is this our focus?

According to the Institute for Women’s Policy research, more than 11% of undergraduate students in the US are single mothers—that’s more than 2.1 million students. Of those single mothers in university, only 8% will complete their degrees—making them 6 times less likely to graduate than their peers. They will also graduate with an average of nearly $30,000 in student debt, almost $5,000 more debt, on average, than their peers. However, single mothers who attain their Bachelor’s degree are 3 times more likely to live above the poverty level. They earn 62% more, translating to nearly $300k in additional income over the course of their career, on average.

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 Little Bundle, we believe that’s a cause—and opportunity—worth focusing on.

That’s why we’ve created The Little Bundle Supermom Scholarship. With this program, our mission is to make things a little easier for single mothers and their loved ones. We’re giving scholarship winners $2,000 (for college winners) or $1,000 (for high school winner) to cover their costs as they pursue their degrees, as well as a year of free high-quality, organic baby formula from Little Bundle. Not a mother right now? No problem—we make it easy for you to defer your year of free formula until you’re ready, or to donate it to a friend or loved on who is ready now.

Scholarship Eligibility

  • Must be a graduating high school senior in your final semester who has been accepted to a university or must be currently enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate degree prgogram at a 4-year, 2-year, vocational, or technical institution in the United States
  • Must be a United States citizen or permament legal resident
  • Must be a single mother, child of a single mother, or closely impacted by a single mother
  • All fields of study and GPAs will be considered
