FACT Graduating Senior Scholarship

The FACT Graduating Senior Scholarship is for graduating high school seniors entering their first year of college.


Each year, scholarships are offered in four categories: (1) for current high school seniors; (2) for people who graduated from high school four or more years ago and are now planning to enroll in a college or university; (3) for students currently enrolled in a college or university; and (4) for trade or technical school aspirants.

A minimum of eight scholarships are awarded annually: One for $10,000 and one for $2,500 in each of the first three categories, and two for a combined maximum of $5,000 in the fourth category.

This program is primarily designed for the so-called "average" student. It is for the individual who may never have made the honor roll or who didn't excel on the athletic field...who sincerely wants to obtain a higher education, but is too often overlooked by other scholarship sources.
