Bourger Women with Children Program

A Special Opportunity for Single Mothers

If you are a single mother who is determined to finish your education and provide a better life for your children, Misericordia University has a special program that can help you reach your goal. The Ruth Matthews Bourger Women With Children Program is designed for academically qualified single mothers of all ages, providing them with the opportunity to attend classes while living on the Misericordia campus, with their children (mothers with children between the ages of 2 and 8 can apply).

This program offers convenient, personal support and financial help that can lead to confidence, academic success and economic self-sufficiency.
