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 2018-19 academic year, we awarded $283,271 to deserving students!
