Young Mormon Feminists is happy to announce that Feminist Mormon Housewives is continuing the Tracy McKay fMh Scholarship for Single Mormon Mothers this year!
Here are the details, from fMh’s announcement:
About one year ago one of our own Tracy McKay, BCC blogger, single mom, and student, lost the financial support of her ward. And the amazing loving fMh community rallied together to get her the support she needed. (we will hear an update from Tracy soon!)
We are proud to announce that this tradition of helping single Mormon mothers will live on in Tracy’s name, as the Tracy McKay fMh Scholarship for Single Mormon Mothers.
Please spread the word far and wide, and pass this information along to any Single Student Moms in need of financial assistance. (Note handy scholarship links on the sidebar (on the fMh website), look to your right near the top!)
