Our Scholarships

Our scholarship funds provide financial assistance to students working to reach their fullest potential through education and training.

The FM Area Foundation manages more than 50 scholarship funds. These funds were created by generous donors to provide financial assistance for students pursuing higher education and training. For the 2017-18 academic year, we awarded $264,705 to deserving students!

Some of the scholarships you’ll find below are awarded to students from a certain high school, while others are awarded to students going into specific areas of study, such as nursing or engineering. Each scholarship has its own set of eligibility requirements. To see if you may be eligible for a scholarship, please search the list below.
