The Surviving Spouse Scholarship Program provides scholarships to  single parents who have lost a spouse while serving in Iraq or Afghanistan. 

With a holistic approach, ASPIRE is concerned not only about the educational welfare of the recipient, but for their overall well-being.

The scholarship provides the recipient financial assistance for basic survival needs, thus eliminating the stumbling blocks many single parents face when deciding to attain higher education.  The Surviving Spouse Scholarship is unique in supplying this type of assistance and breaks down those barriers by equipping recipients with additional support for success.
