Welcome to our website!

We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit association, created in order to offer scholarships to outstanding students who wish to continue their education.


Each year we award a scholarship in the form of a check to the candidate who meets our requirements. Applicants must show proof of American citizenship, have a grade point average of at least 3.0 on a 4.0 scale, submit three references, write a Statement of Purpose and provide proof of acceptance from an accredited institution of higher education. 


Please note that the Board of Directors receive no compensation, and all monies in the fund, after expenses, will be awarded to the candidate chosen.
