Since its start, Marian University’s Working Families Grant Program has sought to create ripple effects through education. Over nearly 20 years, those ripples have collected into waves of change in the lives it has touched.
The Working Families Grant Program is open to single parents who have “primary or physical placement” of children, and are seeking to attain a four-year bachelor’s degree. Once accepted into the program, students receive support services, tuition assistance, and assistance with rent, childcare, and food. In cases of hardships or emergencies, like a broken-down car, or sudden root canal, discretionary funds may also be given.
