Scholarships will be sent directly to the college listed on the application, indicating that it can be used for tuition, fees, or books, and should be treated as a scholarship of additional funds to you, not simply to “replace” other college funds given in your financial packet.
In order for us to issue this award, you will need to contact the college you are attending to get proof of enrollment. You can have the school send it directly to FCAHS Alumni Association, P.O. Box 102, Brooklyn, MS 39425 and fill out the attached form:
Payment will be made in early August contingent upon your verification as a full-time student. If we do not receive any letter or email from you, then the scholarship will be awarded to the next most deserving candidate.
A selection committee is appointed by the President of the Alumni Association. The committee is composed of members of the Alumni Association, teachers and staff at FCAHS, and is sworn to strict confidentiality as to protect the applicants. In no event shall any member of the selection committee be a parent, sibling, aunt, uncle, cousin, or grandparent of any applicant for a scholarship.
The amounts of the scholarships vary each school year. The amount is set by the donations and contributions that are given each year by our Alumni.
The selection of scholarship winners is based upon specific selection criteria found on the application and evaluation worksheet, all approved by the Alumni Association.
