Single-parent households often face additional challenges when compared to dual-headed households. 

Single parents typically have less access to higher education due to the demands of childcare, with just 31% of single mothers over the age of 24 attaining at least a bachelor’s degree as compared to 54% of married mothers. Due to lower rates of college education among single parents, their children often have limited financial resources and have less mentorship when it comes time to attend college themselves.

This scholarship seeks to ​​support single parents or the children of single parents who have overcome adversity and demonstrated a will to succeed.

Any high school senior, undergraduate, or graduate student who is a single parent or the child of a single parent may apply for this scholarship.

To apply, tell us about yourself, the challenges you’ve overcome, and how you plan to make a difference in the world with your education.
