For minority groups, education is often the first step to breaking ceilings and poverty cycles.

80% of single-parent families are led by single mothers, nearly one-third of whom live below the poverty line. Single mothers often have limited time and resources to pursue higher education and their children often have limited financial support as a result, making college difficult to afford.

This scholarship seeks to open the door to education for single mothers and their children so they have the resources they need to pursue new opportunities.

This scholarship is for low-income Asian or Latino undergraduate students who have at least a 3.0 GPA. Children of single moms may apply but single mothers are preferred.

To apply, tell us how your experience with single motherhood has impacted your career choices and what your career goals are.
