Take a Step Towards Your Goals
Little Rock, Ark. (May 24, 2022) — Thanks to donors’ generosity, 24 single parents across Arkansas received endowed scholarships for the Spring 2022 semester. The flexible scholarship of up to $1,200 helps single parents pay for the biggest financial obstacles to obtaining a degree that can lead to a career with family-supporting wages.
“I would like to give my heartfelt gratitude to the Nesson family,” said ASPSF recipient NaTalla Carter, who received the Ralph Nesson Endowed Scholarship. “Everything from textbooks and notebook paper to gasoline and car repairs, this scholarship has allowed my family and me to thrive while I pursue my goal of higher education.”

Usually made in the name of a loved one, endowed scholarships to the Arkansas Single Parent Scholarship Fund are a meaningful way to support the gift of education for generations to come. A gift totaling $25,000, made at one time or over a period of several years, will endow a scholarship in perpetuity in the name of the individual or organization of the donor’s choosing. ASPSF program managers select hardworking students who meet the endowed scholarship requirements, such as county of residence, major, GPA, etc.
Below are the names of the endowed scholarship and the Spring 2022 recipients.
