It’s no secret that single parents face a unique set of obstacles when raising their children.
Trying to pursue an education while being a single parent is even more difficult. For example, only 31% of single mothers over the age of 25 have at least a bachelor’s degree, as compared to 54% of married mothers.
This scholarship seeks to support single parents so they can continue their education and create a better future for themselves.
Any single parent who is pursuing their education may apply for this scholarship opportunity, but minority students from Kentucky are preferred.
To apply, tell us about yourself and how being a single parent has affected your education. Also, tell us how you plan to make a positive impact in your community.
