Education can be extremely expensive, especially for children from single parent households.

In the United States, one in every five children under the age of eighteen live with a single mom. Nearly 40% of single moms living in the US have low wage jobs, while a total of 22 million children in the United States live in a single parent household. 

Not only is it much more difficult for a single parent to raise a child on their own, but the average costs associated with raising a child, without the additional income from another parent, leave little room to fund a future college education. 

The Durham-Dodd Dreams Scholarship was created in order to support a student’s passion for learning, and to help them receive the higher education they deserve, despite the immense cost.

This scholarship is meant for a BIPOC student who was raised in a single parent household and is planning to attend a two or four year degree program. 

Any high school senior or undergraduate student who is both part of an underrepresented minority group and was raised by a single parent may apply for this scholarship. 

To apply, tell us about a woman in your life who has been extremely influential in making you the person you are today.
