Scholarship Recipient Selection Process

The America’s Future, Inc. selection committee will review all completed scholarship application forms and supporting materials. As part of our due diligence process, a member of the scholarship committee may contact the applicant to discuss the application and supporting materials. 
 
Scholarship awardees will be officially notified with a personal phone call, and by mail and email. Applicants who are not awarded a scholarship will be notified by mail.
 
It is not a requirement; however, America’s Future will request the awardee to sign a public release use form allowing America’s Future to promote the awardee to encourage other students to submit scholarship applications in the future. Or, if the awardee is under 18 years old, America’s Future will request a parent, guardian, etc. to sign the same.
 
Student awardees are eligible to apply annually for an America’s Future scholarship if they can show proof that they have maintained a B+ average in all coursework or a 3.5 GPA the prior year. If completing an apprenticeship, a letter stating applicant has met all requirements will suffice.
