The Aspire Scholarship Program is the only stand-alone scholarship fund of its kind for single parent in Jasper and Newton Counties, as well as the state of Missouri. It is run by a volunteer board and relies solely on the support of community volunteers and contributions from corporations, individuals, and foundations and trusts. An investment in Aspire will help offer an alternative to poverty and a chance for a better life for single parent families in our community.
Your one-time gift goes directly toward the support of the Aspire program: student scholarships, merit scholarships, and student incentive gifts.
Your recurring gift will help fund scholarships and merit scholarships for single parent students each semester until their graduation.
Volunteers are always welcome! Individuals can support the program by organizing fundraisers, assisting with scholarship interviews, providing administrative support, getting involved with Celebration of Success, or sharing information about Aspire at local church, business, or club functions.
