The Single Parent Scholarship Fund of Northwest Arkansas, Inc. (SPSF NWA) works to help single parent families become financially stable and independent. We do this by providing direct financial assistance to low-income single parents who are pursuing a career-related course of study in order to gain sufficient employment to meet the basic needs of their families.
The success of SPSF NWA is really the success of the entire community. Our graduates become productive, tax-paying, self-supporting members of the community. Local businesses benefit from having a better educated workforce and consumers with disposable income. Our cities and state benefit from having citizens who are tax payers instead of citizens dependent upon charitable and public resources. Most importantly, the families we serve benefit by breaking the cycle of poverty. The children in our scholarship families are more likely to attend college and succeed by modeling the example set for them by their parents.
