About memorial scholarships

We're often asked, "How does a memorial scholarship fund work?" It's a great question. A memorial scholarship is a unique form of financial aid that keeps a loved one's memory alive by helping deserving students pay for college tuition and other educational expenses so they can afford to attend college.

Any type of scholarship fund, including a memorial scholarship, is geared towards helping students in a meaningful way by providing additional resources and making a college education accessible.
