FRUA announced in December, 2013 that there would be no FRUA scholarship for 2014 due to a scarcity of two resources, the funds and the volunteer time to run the program. After funding six scholarships within the past three years. the scholarship fund is too low to fund scholarships this year. Not only is the scholarship fund itself depleated, this year, as the national baord directs the regional chapter reorganization and completes a major upgrade of the member database, the national volunteers are stretched thin.
We are looking forward to resuming the program in 2015, if the fund can be rebuilt, and if a volunteer committee steps forward to organize, manage, and conduct the Scholarship Program for the 2014-2015 fiscal year.
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.
