It takes dedication to pursue any kind of education, but to do so as a single parent is an even bigger challenge. 

Not only are these students responsible for their own educational journey, but they are also responsible for their children. They have to work to balance the duties of student and parent. Single parents have great strength and perseverance, and that is exemplified in those seeking to further their education. Rebecca Hunter was a loving mother who never stopped aiming toward self-improvement. The Rebecca Hunter Memorial Scholarship, in her name, will support a single parent as they pursue their education.

Single parents are eligible to apply if they are also current students. Preference will be given to those who have taken a non-traditional educational path. To apply, write about how you work to set a good example for your children through your personal improvement and determination.
