Linda Fontenot-Williams was a beloved mother who overcame difficult circumstances to raise her four children.

Linda was a teen mom and was not able to complete her high school education or attend college. Many women like Linda who are teen mothers don’t have many opportunities to pursue higher education due to the responsibilities of motherhood and the costs of raising children, preventing many young moms from being able to achieve their dreams.

This scholarship aims to honor the life of Linda Fontenot-Williams by supporting single mothers throughout their education.

Any African American single mother who is a high school senior or undergraduate student may apply for this scholarship.
