FRUA INC announces that it will resume its FRUA Scholarship program in 2015. A Committee chairperson has been named, and a volunteer scholarship committee is in the process of being formed. No details of the scholarship program, including number of scholarships and amounts are yet available, pending the results of the Fall 2014 give campaign.
After funding six scholarships within the past four years, FRUA put the FRUA scholarship program on hold in December, 2013, for this past 2014 fiscal year. The temporary suspension of teh scholarship program was due to a scarcity of two resources; the funds and the volunteer time to run the program.
News of the 2015 program, including applications and application deadlines are forthcoming.
News of past scholarship award winners includes:
For the fifth year, FRUA is proud to offer a scholarship program.
For this year, FRUA will offer two scholarships, each in the amount of $1,000.
- ONE scholarship will be awarded to a high school senior who will be pursuing post-secondary education in fall 2013 at an accredited two or four-year college, trade or technical school. The selected student will receive a $1,000 scholarship.
- ONE scholarship to a returning or continuing post-secondary student. Recognizing that most scholarships are for first-year students but education expenses can continue for several years, we will award $1,000 to a student already enrolled in post-secondary education an accredited two or four-year college, trade or technical school.
All applicants must be a FRUA member’s dependent child adopted from Eastern Europe/Eurasia/Caucasus.
All applications must be postmarked by March 23, 2013.
