                             Carter Roger Williams Scholarship, will close in just four weeks!
The scholarship provides four year scholarships of up to $20,000 per student per year for graduating high school seniors in Rhode Island. 
Rhode Island founder Roger Williams was a remarkable man. He came from a very modest background, and access to education was absolutely key in shaping his character, beliefs, and actions throughout his life. Roger Williams set the standard for separation of church and state that the nation adopted, and his vision and determination built the “lively experiment” that was and is Rhode Island. We believe that many of his values are more relevant than ever.
The Carter Roger Williams Initiative provides annual scholarships to Rhode Island high school seniors who display an appreciation for, and a desire to embody, the values of our state’s founder. The Initiative also provides comprehensive resources and information about Roger Williams and his teachings via findingRogerWilliams.com.
The deadline to apply for the Carter Roger Williams Scholarship is midnight on Monday, February 12, 2018. Applicants must currently be residents of Rhode Island and seniors at any high school in Rhode Island, and they must have been accepted by an accredited post-secondary institution by the date of award. Application should be made via our online, electronic grants system. The entire selection and application process is outlined here.

Scholarships for single parents reward mothers and fathers with free tuition money to afford returning to the college classroom.

The U.S. Census Bureau estimates that 13.7 million single parents are raising nearly 22 million children nationwide. Around one-quarter of these parents have incomes below the poverty level. Juggling parenthood, careers, and college coursework on one salary is overwhelming for most. Custodial parents often depend on government assistance to keep their children fed, sheltered, and thriving.

Many public and private agencies have also reserved scholarship money to empower single moms and dads with higher learning. The following are 20 scholarships for single parents to finish their degree, find better-paying jobs, and better their children’s lives.
