CFNIL’s scholarship funds were created by donors that recognize the importance of helping students achieve their educational goals, now and in perpetuity. The funds’ creators selected the criteria based on their interests and the community’s need. Many of CFNIL’s scholarships are memorials, which celebrate the life and passions of individuals. The applications are read and scored by committees of volunteers who use a “blind” review process and make recommendations to CFNIL’s Board of Trustees. Scholarship recipients are announced in late April. Awards are sent directly to the recipient’s post-secondary institution.
To be eligible for the Amber Huber Memorial Scholarship, applicants must: be a graduating senior female from Byron High School; have participated in the Byron High School girls track program and/or Byron High School cheerleading program for at least three seasons including her senior year; and have a minimum GPA of 2.0. The scholarship is renewable for four years as long as criteria are met. Dollar amounts will vary.
