Scholarship Opportunities FREE seeks to make its services available to all qualified veterans, at-risk youth and special needs individuals regardless of income. We are able to fulfill this goal through the generosity of program supporters and grants.
Application for Scholarships Individuals participating in the program for the first time as well as those who have had their circumstances change may request a Scholarship Application. Scholarships are awarded only after an individual has been accepted into a class.
Current/ Continuing Participants: All scholarship requests must be renewed on an annual basis by submitting a newly completed Scholarship Application by March 10 each calendar year. Scholarship Applications are due by March 10 for priority status even if participation is not planned until Summer Sessions. After March 10 we cannot guarantee funds will be available and applications will be considered on a first come/ first serve basis.
Scholarship Awards Our Board of Directors review Scholarship Application requests, with all information kept strictly confidential. Scholarship awards are based upon the applicant’s need, including extenuating circumstances, and the amount of scholarship funds available each year.
Scholarships are awarded in the form of credit toward the cost of a class and cannot be used toward other FREE-sponsored activities.
