Welcome to Raise the Barr's Online Applications
for Scholarships and Emergency Grants.

Raise the Barr applies the two-generation model (2Gen) to help single parents complete their post-secondary education, ultimately transforming entire families.   The 2Gen approach focuses on creating opportunities for and addressing needs of both children and the adults in their lives simultaneously.  

Raise the Barr's scholarships are currently CLOSED.  Next year's scholarship cycle will be open in August 2020 to single-parent undergraduate students residing in MN or CA who have not yet earned an undergraduate degree or certificate.  

Raise the Barr's emergency grants are offered on a rotating basis throughout the year and are available to single-parent undergraduates students in Los Angeles who are affiliated with one of our partners.   Students must be referred by one of or partners to apply.  

Students may apply for both a scholarship and emergency grant.  

You will be asked to register before you can apply.
