The purpose of the FMBC Scholarship Memorial Fund is to encourage educational growth and to provide financial assistance to

FMBC members who are seeking higher education at a college or university.  

 

The fund assists graduating high school seniors and renewal applicants who are enrolled for completion of an undergraduate

degree.  The minimum award, based on availability of funds, is $400.00 per school semester  for full time enrollment

(as determined by the school).  The award will be pro-rated for students who are enrolled less than full time.   Scholarship awards

will be paid to the student as a one-time award per semester.

 

Scholarship awards are not automatically renewed for successive school terms or years.  Current recipients must submit a new

application to be eligible for renewal.
