Larry Darnell Green lived a life full of helping others and giving back to his community.
Single-parent families have become increasingly common in recent decades, increasing from 13% of families in1968 to a staggering 32% in 2017. With more children coming from single-parent households, it’s critical that there is adequate support so they can overcome the barriers to higher education.
This scholarship aims to honor Larry’s legacy by helping single parents or the children of single parents afford their college education.
Any high school senior or undergraduate student who is the child of a single parent or a single parent themself may apply for this scholarship but applicants with volunteering experience are preferred.
To apply, tell us how being a single parent or the child of a single parent has shaped your educational journey and how you hope to give back to your community.
How has coming from a single parent household or being a single parent yourself shaped your educational journey? How do you plan on giving back to your community in the future?
