Single Parent Scholarship Fund Now Taking Applications

Thursday, January 4, 2018

With the start of the new year, Clay County residents are reminded of the deadline for applying for the Single Parent Scholarship Fund. The deadline for applying for assistance for the spring semester is Wednesday, Jan 30.

In recent years there were big changes in the way students may apply for the assistance, as paper applications are no longer available. Those wanting to apply must do so online by visiting the website Once there they can click on the tab marked “Scholarships” and then go to “Find Your County.” They will then be able to go to the Clay County link and find an application form. All applications must be completed, and submitted, online and no paper applications will be accepted.

Those wanting additional information may contact Annette Dutka at the DHS office in Piggott at 870 598-2282 or Debbie Baker at the Clay County Extension office in Piggott at 870 598-2246.
