Program Information

The Families of Freedom Scholarship Fund has successfully migrated to the Scholarship America Hub! Moving to the Hub will enable us to provide faster processing leading to an increase in overall satisfaction for the students and families we serve.

While the scholarship process as a whole will remain the same, there are a few important differences in the application process. The application will no longer be available on the Families of Freedom Website. There will be a separate application required when applying for a Year, Spring, Fall or Summer award. The application deadlines have also been adjusted (see dates below).

Prior to the application window opening all registrants will receive an email with a link(s) to the Families of Freedom Application(s). The link(s) will only be valid during the application window. This means the student MUST apply during the window or they will not be able to receive funding for that timeframe.

For example, the 2020-2021 Spring Window is open January 14, 2021 – May 1, 2021. This student must submit their online application during this timeframe or they will NOT receive funding for Spring semester. There are no exceptions. Please note all applications will close at 3 CT on the last day.

Please check your email for your application invitation to apply. Spring invitations were sent January 2021. Year, Fall and Summer invitations will be sent Spring of 2021.
