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 2021-2022 academic year, we awarded $334,825 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.
