Janey Mae was a mother who showed her children undying love and support. Even after her passing, her memory and love have continued to impact the lives of her children and of people she would never meet. 

Children who have lost a parent and live in single-parent households may have a tougher time transitioning to college life than their peers.

This scholarship is a testament to the connection that parents have with their children, and how this connection cannot be broken, even when faced with death. 

This scholarship is meant for a high school student who has lost a parent or legal guardian and desires support as they transition from high school into college. 

Any high school junior or senior that has lost a parent and has a GPA of 2.5 or above, may apply for this scholarship.

To apply, tell us know how living in a single-parent household has molded you and how it continues to shape you into the person you are today.
