Help Support A Single Parent's Dreams
Be a Partner. Be a Hero.
Take a Step Towards Your Goals
Your family. Our future. Together, we create stronger, more educated, and more self-sufficient families.
We help eligible single parents in Arkansas build a new future for their families. At ASPSF, we support both part-time and full-time single parent students pursuing a postsecondary education, including associate degrees, bachelor’s degrees, and certificate programs. We also make referrals to additional services to help with other needs, and offer developmental programs to help you be job ready.
Our scholarships not only help with school costs. They can be used for household expenses, daycare costs, commuting expenses, and more while you are in school. We will walk alongside you, supporting you through school to graduation and into sustainable employment with family-supporting wages.
If you are looking to complete your education, Arkansas Single Parent Scholarship Fund can help. Our goal is to ease the financial burden of single parents wanting to improve the quality of life for themselves and for their families.
ASPSF creates life-changing opportunities for families by empowering single mothers and fathers to pursue their education, increase their income, and raise the standard of living for themselves and their families. Their achievement, in turn, shapes the educational goals and career aspirations of the next generation. With access to education, the entire family begins to see opportunities where none seemed to exist before. ASPSF is helping to break the cycle of poverty, one family at a time.
Take the first step! By pursuing education, you can transform the future for yourself and your children. We'll be by your side every step of the way.
Help us introduce single-parent families to the power of education. With 100+ ways to volunteer, there's a place for everyone on the ASPSF team.
Give the gift of education! Help transform single-parent families, raising them out of poverty and setting them on the road to a brighter future.
Because of our generous partners, we’re able to provide financial assistance and personal support to over 1,300 single parents each year. Today, Arkansas benefits from tens of thousands of professionals - teachers, nurses, social workers and counselors, mechanics, HVAC Techs, electricians and welders, directors and managers, IT professionals, etc. – who got their first degree or certification with the help of a scholarship from ASPSF.
