  • Scholarships range from $1,500 to $5,000.
  • Awarded to many students across America annually, based on geographical region and the student’s essay.
  • The application is due to FRS by March 1, 2019.
  • The application requires the sponsorship signature of Anita Fledderman, ETC Marketing Manager, prior to mailing.
