The Student Parent Alliance Scholarship Fund was created to aid in removing all barriers for parenting law students that would prevent them from succeeding in law school. This scholarship fund will aid parents wishing to attend law school by providing financial assistance to those in need that will help cover the cost of tuition, books, child care expenses, or any other expenses related to a parent’s success in law school.

Student Parent Alliance (SPA) has a twofold mission of aiding current parenting students in law school and making law school more accessible for future parenting students. This mission is carried out by diagnosing the issues that current parenting students face that are in need of immediate attention. Once challenges faced by parenting students are recognized, solutions can be proposed and carried out. SPA aims to connect parenting students with resources that they otherwise would not have recognized, as university support is sometimes difficult to locate. SPA also aims to show prospective Cleveland-Marshall parenting students that they will have the support and resources they need to enter law school while raising a family. Awareness is key in facilitating recruitment of new parenting students for the law school. The more visibility current parenting students have at Cleveland-Marshall, the more likely it is that future parenting students will feel comfortable registering for classes. SPA wants parenting students of all walks of life to know that they are seen and supported.
