At ASPSF, we provide financial assistance and personal support to single parent students across the state. Being a parent is hard enough. Being a single parent is even harder. You have all of the responsibilities of raising a child, while also having to work to provide an income for your family. Getting a secondary education will help to set your family up for success.
We can help you:
With a new degree or certification comes a new career and higher wages. Investing in your education enables you to raise the standard of living for your family. Not only will getting a degree or certification make you more comfortable, it will set a new standard for your children.
When your children see you studying and working hard, investing in yourself, they learn to value themselves. They begin to see their own college education within reach. By pursuing your education, you can create a bright new future for yourself and your children.

As a single parent, finding financial aid is often crucial. ASPSF scholarships are made to be flexible! We give you discretionary money to use as you see fit – to pay for simple things that create the biggest barriers between you and your education. This can include things like childcare, gas, car repairs, rent, and utilities. By taking a few things off your plate, we help you focus on building a better future and taking care of your family.
We’re here to help you get that profitable career of your dreams. We know it’s hard to balance work, school, and paying the bills. So we work hard to build a safety net around you while you’re in school. We award flexible scholarships to help with what you need most, and then we connect you with wrap-around services to help fill any gaps. These services might include:
You’re working hard to build a new future for your family, and we’re here to support you on your journey! We support both full-time and part-time single-parent students pursuing an associate's degree, bachelor’s degree, or certificate program. We want to help make your educational dreams a reality.
At ASPSF, we know college is not the only path to financial stability. We support any eligible single parent student pursuing education beyond high school, including those enrolled in skilled trade programs. Whether you’re working towards a career as a welder, electrician, diesel mechanic, or other in-demand trade, we’re here to help you every step of the way.
