Falcon Education Foundation Scholarships At Falcon High School

  • Falcon High School Excellence Scholarship: 

    FEF Logo The Falcon Education Foundation is pleased to award The Falcon High School “Excellence” Scholarship to deserving Falcon High School seniors. This special opportunity is made possible through generous gifts provided by donors and businesses in the Falcon High School community.
    The scholarship gives preference to students who not only have verified financial need but also demonstrate merit. Financial need may be verified by evidence such as eligibility for free and reduced lunch or the requested family contribution documented on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). An eligible recipient must:
    • Have a minimum cumulative Grade Point Average (G.P.A.) of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale
    • Be active in co-curricular or community actives (e.g. student government, clubs, athletics, after school employment)
    The scholarship committee reserves the right to use its discretion to determine the scholarship recipient based on a “whole person” concept.
    Scholarship funds will be disbursed after the selected student provides enrollment verification for the school of their choice and disbursed in even increments each semester for 4 years while the student is continuously enrolled at an institution of higher education (note: this scholarship is only available to students who intend to complete a 4-year degree).
    Two 2015 Excellence Scholarships will be awarded. One recipient will receive $5,000 per year and one recipient will receive $2,000 per year.

    The recipient will be required to maintain a cumulative G.P.A of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale while attending college to continue receiving funds (renewals verified by the Scholarship Committee each March). 

    A Scholarship Committee consisting of the donors as well as a team of three students & three Falcon High School Counselors will select the scholarship(s). The number of scholarships may vary each year and will be determined by the amount of funds available. 

    The application must be submitted by March 1st of the student’s senior year. The committee will complete the selection process by March 30th.
