Being a single parent and going back to college can be a life dream, and it can also be stressful. To help these students out, Champlain College started the Single Parents Program. It creates a multidimensional approach to supporting students, from one-on-one case management to community events, both with and without the kids.
Early in his tenure, Champlain's former president, Dr. David Finney, increased our Single Parents Scholarship with the intent to meet full tuition for single parents who are financially eligible undergraduate students who are legal Vermont residents. Successful applications for the scholarship will add scholarship funds to their other federal and Vermont state grants and together these funds will cover the cost of tuition.
To inquire about application for the Single Parents Scholarship, please contact Stephanie Doan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Along with workshops and activities that are available to all students, we hold additional programming to foster a community of support among students in the Single Parents Program. Some of these programs include monthly lunch socials, trick-or-treating on campus, and our annual holiday party, where campus and community partners get together to help provide gifts and a loving experience for families in the Single Parents Program.
It's not enough to send students to class without providing a network of support and tools for academic success. That's why Champlain offers a variety of different services including:
Champlain works with a number of different community and state organizations to make sure students in the Single Parents Program have the support they need in order to find professional and academic success at Champlain. Below are just a few of the different programs and resources available to students.
These are just a few of the many different opportunities students take advantage of. For access to these resources and more, students should contact Stephanie Doan, Student Resources Coordinator.
