Arkansas Single Parent Scholarship Fund (ASPSF) awards scholarships up to $1,200 to eligible single parents who are attending college or obtaining technical training. A full list of eligibility guidelines is available at 

“ASPSF has provided me with much-needed financial support throughout the time I have been in college. This allowed me to focus more on the academic side of school, my girls’ schooling, and being the best father I can be,” said recipient Will Brock, who’s studying psychology at Central Baptist College. 

If awarded, recipients can use the funds for any combination of school and/or household expenses that removes a financial burden and helps the student stay in school. 

Scholarships are combined with wraparound services — including workshops, mentorships, and tutoring — to create a support system helping single parents along their higher education journey to graduation and professional employment.
