Single parents face significant obstacles on the road to higher education that their peers often don’t have to worry about.

In addition to the time and money they must devote to their studies, single parents also must come up with the funds and time necessary to raise their children. The children of single parents face their own struggles, often having limited financial resources and fewer mentors than peers from dual-parent households.

This scholarship seeks to support single parents and children of single parents who are pursuing the arts so they can complete their degrees and achieve their dreams.

Any high school senior, undergraduate, or graduate student who is a single parent or a child from a single-parent household who is pursuing fine arts, graphic design, art therapy, digital/multi-media arts, photography, game and interactive media design, cinematography and film/video production, theater arts, fashion design, musical art, dance, or culinary arts may apply for this scholarship.

To apply, tell us why you’re passionate about art and how your experience in a single-parent household has influenced your decision to pursue the arts.

Selection Criteria:
Passion, Drive, Ambition
