The Maurine and Joseph Humphris Fund for Single Parents

Through the generous donations of the late Maurine and Joseph Humphris, and other contributors, an award program has been established to assist single parents in attending BYU Education Week.

Applications are accepted annually from April 15 to July 15. A committee reviews the applications that meet the fund criteria (listed below) and assists as many applicants as possible. Distribution amounts are determined by the minimum financial assistance applicants need to attend the program. Preference is given to patrons who have not previously received assistance. Applicants must be US citizens.


  1. Single parent (male or female)
  2. Guardian of one or more children under the age of 14
  3. Financial need
