The Alabama Funeral Directors Association is committed to excellence in funeral service education. Two AFDA $1,000.00 scholarships ($500.00 per semester) will be awarded to qualified students whose plans are to complete their education in an accredited mortuary science school and service the public in their chosen profession in the State of Alabama.
All scholarship applicants must be sponsored by an active member of the AFDA. All scholarships will be awarded at the discretion of the Scholarship Committee of the AFDA. Awards will be based on application information, academic record and evaluation. The decision of the Scholarship Committee will be final. Should there be no applicants or if the applicants do not meet the standards set by the committee, the committee reserves the right not to make the award. All awards will be made prior to the beginning of a full semester.
The student and the school will be notified by mail of the award. Upon proper invoices from the accredited school, the funds will be paid directly to the school on a pro-rata basis until the award is exhausted. The scholarship award is to be used exclusively for the payment of tuition of mortuary science classes, and textbooks necessary for mortuary classes. If for any reason a recipient should drop a mortuary science required class or discontinue their education in the field of mortuary science, the unused portion will remain in the AFDA Scholarship Fund.
