Giving Guide: Arkansas Single Parent Scholarship Fund

Rachel, a recent ASPSF grad, celebrates with her daughter.


Arkansas Single Parent Scholarship Fund (ASPSF) exists to create stronger, more educated and more self-sufficient families.

ASPSF introduces low-income single parents to the transformative power of education. By providing financial support, mentoring and career coaching, the organization helps single-parent scholars pursue higher education and kickoff careers. The result? Sustainable employment with family-supporting wages. And that’s not all. ASPSF empowers single parents to provide a better life for their children and inspire their children to seek higher education themselves. ASPSF’s investment in their students not only strengthens communities with viable economic impact, it emboldens families to imagine a brighter future.
