College Support Opportunity for TANF Recipients

Do you receive TANF benefits?

Do you want to get a college degree?

Parents as Scholars

May be for YOU!

Parents as Scholars (PaS) can help with:

  •  A monthly cash benefit
  •  Child care
  •  Transportation reimbursement
  •  Books
  • Car repairs
  •  Other services

Parents in PaS may be eligible for federal PELL grants to cover some, if not all, of their tuition costs. However, PaS may also be able to help.

Talk to your ASPIRE worker

about PaS today!

This is what two past participants in Parents as Scholars (PaS)

have to say about the program:

“My two sons respect me for working so hard to go to college. They’ve gained renewed interest in their own school work as education has become a higher priority in our household. And I know that they are more likely to pursue their own college educations now.”

- 2009 PaS graduate

“I grew up in poverty and dropped out of high school at 16. I had a son at 17 and left an abusive marriage at 22. When I first started school I suffered through major social anxiety and depression. I felt like I just wasn’t smart enough. Now I’ve overcome my fears. I was named an outstanding senior when I graduated from the University of Southern Maine. Thanks to the Parents as Scholars program I now receive good pay and benefits and no longer must rely on services from the state.”

- 2006 PaS graduate
