Researchers support a positive correlation between specific parenting strategies and student motivation and between student motivation and academic achievement. This study focused on determining correlative presence between research-based parenting strategies and scholarship award to post-secondary education. The examination of the educational opportunities made possible by scholarship award to post-secondary education through the influence of parenting strategies may lead to future study of parenting accountability in education policy and law, and the relationship to level of education of the societal member and the ultimate contribution the member makes to the society. Dependent variables of scholarships applied for and awarded, and the independent variables of research-supported parenting strategies, GPA, cumulative ACT, parent or guardian education and household income were analyzed in a quantitative correlation method and design using z-scores, Pearson's r for significance, descriptive data analysis, and multiple and logistic regression. The sample was derived from a population of 18 to 23 year olds having graduated from a specific high school in a rural Western region of the United States using Facebook to distribute the link to the survey on Survey Monkey. A logistic regression indicated no significant correlation on scholarship award when considering the cumulative effect of research-supported parenting strategies.
