- Children, birth through 11th grade, are eligible for the Future-Use Scholarship, pending standard eligibility requirements have been met and required documentation has been provided. Once awarded, the recipient will not apply for this scholarship again.
Scholarships will be used to subsidize the cost of tuition, school books, fees and other educational expenses when the recipient is ready to attend a college, university, technical school or certification program.
Each Future Use Scholarship awarded will be at the current value of the Immediate Use and Re-Apply Scholarship awards (currently at $5,000). This scholarship amount will be placed in a FHF Future Use Scholarship account to be invested in accordance with the FHF approved investment strategy. Future scholarship values will be determined by the FHF Board of Directors.
Each Future Use Scholarship recipient has until age 24 or six years after graduation from high school to use his/her award (whichever is greater).
Applicants will be notified via email regarding award decisions by the end of June each year. Please notify FHF at email@example.com if any of your contact information changes.
