Single parent scholarships are awarded every semester; however, they are not automatically renewed from year to year. You must reapply each calendar year that you are eligible to receive a single parent scholarship. Please note that you cannot receive more than one award of the single parent scholarship per calendar year.

If you are a Financial Aid recipient, receiving any scholarship will affect your Cost of Attendance (COA), and it is your responsibility to notify the Financial Aid Office if you are selected for an award. Should you be awarded a scholarship from any source (internal or external), take time to send the institution a “Thank You” letter.
