Hello my name is Felicia Hendrix and I'm currently the Call Center Coordinator for the OBAT clinic in Boston working with Opioids patients. I tried to apply for this scholarship but for some reason it won't let me. I have applied for a 2.8 year Mortuary program, my current employer does not offer tuition reimbursement for me as I'm non union. I feel I need this scholarship because this generation of Morticians are all elderly and with the recent rash of violence, COVID 19, Opioid death and just natural deaths, the system of our older Morticians need some help. I grew up in the community dealt with and continue to be around death. This school is very expensive but is the only one that is offered in Massachusetts. My love of people and wanting to help them however is what is driving me to pursue this scholarship. I hope that my comments are taken into consideration as I look forward to beginning school November 9,2020 at Fine Mortuary College In Boston ma

by Izzy Hall

At Scholarships.com, we help students find scholarships to pay for college tuition. But what if you didn’t have to pay tuition? There are a handful of schools in the U.S. that are tuition-free, meaning that while students may have to pay for room and board or meal plans, they do not have to pay tuition to attend the college. On the flip side, tuition-free schools may require students to work alongside their studies or, for military academies, to enlist upon graduation. [...]
