Program Information

The Families of Freedom Scholarship Fund has successfully migrated to the Scholarship America Hub.

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 registrants will receive an email with a link to the Families of Freedom Application. The link will only be valid during the application window. The student MUST apply during the window or they will not be able to receive funding. Please note all applications will close at 3:00 p.m. CT on the close date.

Please check your email for a link to the application.
