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 60 scholarship funds. These funds were created by generous individuals, families and businesses to provide financial assistance for students pursuing higher education and training. For the 2022-2023 academic year, we awarded $248,000 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. 

We will be accepting applications for the 2023-2024 academic year beginning early 2023.

All scholarship applications will be due by March 31 of current year, unless noted on application.
