Student Scholarship

Being a parent while educating yourself in University can be a challenge. Parents who study often find both time and money are an issue. That's why ParentsNeed has created a yearly scholarship designed for students who show themselves to find balance between the two and can benefit from support. Our mission has been to help parents on their journey of parenthood with a motto of shifting the focus back to them.  This includes editorials on advice, reviews on necessities like best jogging strollers,  baby registries, best umbrella stroller etc and even lighted vanity mirror.
