Arkansas Single Parent Scholarship Fund (ASPSF), an Arkansas based nonprofit wants to help
 
The mission of ASPSF is to enable single parents to attain self-sufficiency through post-secondary education. Since 1990, ASPSF has awarded more than 41,000 scholarships Arkansas awarding students in every county. A single parent is one that has legal custody of a child 18 years old or younger. ASPSF makes a positive difference in the lives of impoverished families by assisting single parents who are enrolled in college or technical programs and are seeking better-paying careers.

We encourage any student that qualifies to apply by completing the on-line application at www.aspsf.org and choosing Jackson County.
