SPSF is a flexible scholarship.
SPSF scholarship funds are flexible for each individual recipient. Funds are held in an account and recipients access their funding throughout the semester. Scholarship funds are utilized for rent, child-care, utilities, gasoline, groceries, licensure or professional dues, auto repairs, insurance, medical bills, or other approved expenses.
For the 2013-14 academic year students receive $2,700 annually; $900 for the fall, spring, and summer semesters.
In addition to scholarship funding, each recipient participates in personal and professional development workshops, meets monthly with a mentor, and has access to a wide variety of community resources.
