How to Apply for a Spread Your Wings Scholarship

To enroll your child in a Spread Your Wings Scholarship, please follow the process below:

  • Enroll your child/children in the class, lesson, sport, or activity and request an invoice from the vendor or organization with whom you’re enrolling. Forward the invoice to Families Helping Families of Iowa for payment. Invoices can be  scanned and emailed to or dropped off or mailed to our office:

Families Helping Families of Iowa
3516 Center Point Road
Cedar Rapids IA, 52402

  • Apply for a scholarship through our online application below.
  • If your application is approved, Families Helping Families of Iowa will pay the vendor directly. We will not pay for any approved Spread Your Wings activities without an invoice. Do not pay your invoice prior to approval of your application as we will not reimburse you.

Caregivers only need to apply for a specific class or activity at one time, but can only apply for one unique activity per 12 months/calendar year, per child. Families Helping Families will continue to pay for the activity as long as an invoice is received. Each new activity or new enrollment for another child requires the completion of a new application.
