Project Working Mom 2010 is the fourth in a successful series of programs to raise awareness about the education gap in America among adults. More than 70 percent of American adults do not possess a college degree and this gap creates a structural cycle of unskilled workers and under-education and under-employment among American adults. This silent crisis demands that attention be paid to adult education in this country. Demonstrative of the need and demand among adults for education, previous Project Working Mom programs generated more than 435,000 applications for full-tuition scholarships from moms and dads who want to return to school. Those programs awarded more than 150 full-tuition scholarships, totaling approximately $6 million. Since the January launch of Project Working Mom 2010 close to 12,000 people have submitted an application for a scholarship.
