Scholarship Program


Chapter 54 has a long-running scholarship program that provides a $2,500 tuition grant each year to a dependent or grandchild of a SFA Chapter 54 member in good standing. Each year the Chapter Scholarship Committee reviews all applications received and recommends a recipient to the Chapter Executive Committee for final approval.

Applicants must be the dependent spouse, child, or grandchild of a SFA Chapter 54 member (alive or deceased). The applicant must have been accepted by or already attending an accredited college, university, junior college, or vocational institute. This includes postgraduate studies.

Upon satisfactory proof of successful completion of that semester, the SFA Chapter 54 Scholarship Committee will make payment directly to the school concerned, with instructions to apply the payment to the tuition cost for that student.
