The deadline for applying for a 2021 Fall scholarship from the Single Parent Scholarship Fund of Northwest Arkansas is June 15th.

The Single Parent Scholarship Fund of Northwest Arkansas, Inc. (SPSF NWA) works to help single-parent families become financially stable and independent, by providing direct financial assistance to low-income single parents who are pursuing a career-related course of study to gain sufficient employment to meet the basic needs of their families.

Money is often a concern for single-parent households. Single Parent Scholarship Fund wants to remind parents to file for the Child and Dependent Care tax credit. The credit allows up to $3000 of tax credit for dependent care expenses for children under the age of 13. So if you send your child to daycare, you could get as much as $6000 back on your taxes this year. The amount of the refund depends on your income and how many children you have.
