The application deadline in Wednesday, May 1st so make sure to share this $20,000 scholarship opportunity with any eligible seniors that you know or if you are a deserving senior, make sure to apply!
The Scholarship Fund has been one of the Foundation’s programs since 2002. Since being founded, the Scholarship Fund has awarded over one million dollars to dozens of local seniors. Each year, we award multiple $20,000 college scholarships to graduating high school seniors in the Tri-State area. Currently, we have 24 recipients in our Scholarship Program and we are excited to continue growing the program.
Anthony and his family developed the Scholarship Fund to help graduating seniors attend a local college or university to achieve their dream of gaining a higher education. Recipients of the Scholarship Fund do not only receive $20,000 towards their college education, they also become a part of the AMF family and are provided with resources and connections to help them navigate through college and future job searches.
