Congratulations on your selection! We are excited to support you and your educational goals. Here are a few tips to assist with your scholarship funds:

The foundation will mail Fall scholarships in July and Spring scholarships in December.


Changes in educational institutions are allowable and are the sole responsibility of the recipient. Fall changes must be received by July 1 and Spring changes must be received by December 1. Contact Bill Benskin ( or Laura Jeffrey ( if you plan on changing schools in order to ensure the funds arrive at the proper location. If notifications are received after the deadline, funds will most likely be delayed.

We want to express our sincere appreciation for supporting the educational goals of our Amazing Volunteers and their Talented Dependents!
