CustodyXChange Single Parent Scholarships

Each year, we offer two $1,000 scholarships to single parents going to college. There are over 13.5 million single parents residing in the United States. Due to the high cost of attending college, along with the difficulties of balancing work and child care, further education is not always possible.

At Custody X Change, we believe everybody should have the opportunity to attend college, regardless of their circumstances. Single parents often struggle to accumulate funds and maintain a decent standard of living while studying. The fear of being unable to provide adequate child care often overshadows academic aspirations.
