  • Scholarship Description
  • The purpose of the Arkansas Single Parent Scholarship Fund (ASPSF) is to provide supplemental financial assistance to those single parents living in Arkansas who are pursuing a course of instruction that will improve their income-earning potential.

    In most cases, scholarships may be used for tuition, books, utility bills, car maintenance, childcare, or any other financial need that contributes to the recipients' success in school. However, the guidelines for the manner in which the scholarship may be used are at the discretion of each scholarship provider.

    Our strategy is to work at the county level by organizing affiliate Single Parent Scholarship Funds. These affiliate organizations are operated independently from one another. They each are responsible for setting their own scholarship guidelines, award amounts, application deadlines, and more. Each organization designs its own version of the SPSF scholarship application as well.

    The standard eligibility criteria adopted by all Single Parent Scholarships throughout Arkansas are that eligible applicants are single parents living in Arkansas who are considered economically disadvantaged and who have custodial care of one or more children under the age of eighteen, and that eligible applicants are those who have not previously earned a diploma or degree from a four-year institution of higher learning (with the exception of those who are pursuing a Master of Arts degree in teaching).

Rather than offer up more dry discourse on the subject, Domenick Scudera brazenly decided to do something [...]
