|Huggable Supermom Scholarship||At Huggable, 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 Huggable 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 Huggable 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 Huggable, we believe that’s a cause—and opportunity—worth focusing on.
That’s why we’ve created The Huggable Supermom Scholarship. With this program, our mission is to make things a little easier for single mothers and their loved ones. We’re giving high school scholarship winners $1,000 toward the cost of pursuing their degrees. College scholarship winners receive $2,000 as well as a $1,000 gift certificate to Huggable for organic baby formula. 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.

While this nontraditional path led to his prosperity, it always worried Dave that others would expect to achieve similar fame and wealth by not finishing high school or attending college. Faced with this dilemma, at 61 years old, Dave took the required classes to earn his General Equivalency Diploma (GED) and was honored at a ceremony at Coconut Creek High School in Ft. Lauderdale, FL,. The senior class of 1993 embraced their honorary classmate by inviting Dave and his wife Lorraine to the senior prom and voting him “Most Likely to Succeed.” Inspired by his desire to celebrate the outstanding achievements of youth in America, he launched the Wendy’s High School Heisman program. Twenty-five years later, Wendy’s has honored more than 600,000 of the nation’s most esteemed high school seniors who share Wendy’s values of giving back to their communities, treating people with respect, continuing education and excelling on the athletic field.
