About the Scholarship

The Scholarship Program expects to award scholarships to a select number of eligible participants and their dependents who will be enrolled in an accredited college, university, community college, vocational school, or trade or technical school as a full-time student in the fall of 2020.

In addition, on December 31, 2019, dependent child applicants must be under the age of 24, unmarried and a dependent of the participant for federal income tax purposes.

Applicants who submit preliminary applications and meet the initial scholarship award requirements will be mailed a full application in early January 2020.
