NOTE: Incomplete and/or late applications are ineligible for consideration. Postmarks are verified upon receipt.
The review of applications by the Selection Committee is confidential and is made without regard to race, sex, religion or national origin.
Scholarships are awarded for excellence based on academic record, school and community activities and awards, personal essay, and letters of recommendation.
Scholarship selections are made in April and scholarship recipients will be notified via email no later than mid-May.
Awarded scholarships must be used during the school year immediately following the award.
The scholarship monies will be awarded upon receipt of the following: 1) a completed FHMFM Scholarship Letter, and 2) a letter of acceptance on official letterhead from the institutions of the student’s choice.
Funds are disbursed directly to the institution of higher learning and not to the individual recipient. The recipient is responsible for notification of the financial aid office of the institution of their choice.
Scholarship recipients who accept a full four-year scholarship (to include tuition, room and board) from another source or receive an appointment to a military service academy must forfeit this scholarship and notify, in writing, the Ft.
