Arkansas Single Parent Scholarship Fund impacts the lives of thousands of families each year and we rely on community support to do so. Thanks to generous donors like you, we are able to continue empowering single parents in Arkansas through the gift of education. Your contributions make a direct impact in the lives of our single parents and their children.

Your Dollars at Work:
  • $2 a week ($104 a year) provides gas for a student who must travel more than an hour one-way to attend classes
  • $5 a week ($260 a year) provides a developmental workshop for 25 scholarship recipients allowing them to refine their resume writing, interview skills, soft skills, etc.
  • $10 ($520 a year) a week provides a scholarship for a part-time student who is raising children, working, and going to school.
  • $20 ($1040 a year) a week provides a scholarship for a single parent who is raising children while going to school full-time.



Arkansas Single Parent Scholarship Fund helps single parents raise their families out of poverty through the pursuit of education and professional employment.


Since our inception in 1990, we have awarded over 46,000 scholarships totaling nearly $28 million. A follow up study of our 2017 recipients revealed that an incredible 87% either stayed in school or graduated with a college degree or professional certification. And 90% of ASPSF working graduates earn above-poverty wages!


With results like these, it’s easy to see why your investment in ASPSF matters. When you donate to ASPSF, you make post-secondary education possible for low-income single parents striving to build a better future for their families. Together, we not only improve the lives of single parents today but the lives of their children and generations to come.
