Reaffirming Individual Success and Empowerment


Scholarship Overview


While studies show that women are the most educated population group, on average 53% of single mothers will drop out of college due to a lack of support. According to the Institute for Women's Policy Research, college students with children face many challenges such as: lack of childcare, transportation, financial assistance and family support. These roadblocks increase the likelihood of single parents leaving college with no degree.

The mission of Breath of Life, Inc. is to promote holistic supportive services to help families and individuals thrive. In consideration of our mission, we have created the RISE Single Parent’s College Scholarship.

Our goal is to supplement existing government assistance, college grants and loans. The scholarship awarded by our program is designed to encourage single parents to enter school and to promote degree completion.

More than just tuition assistance, the scholarship funds will also be used for:

● Transportation
● Child Care
● Textbooks and fees
