I am sincerely honored to have been selected as the recipient of a scholarship. Thank you for your generosity, which has allowed me to continue my studies to become a Registered Nurse. 

Saying thank you is not enough for the investment you are making in my education.  I never thought college would be possible for me.  However, your gift is making it possible.

I am honored to be one of the scholarship recipients.  Thanks to your generous support, I am the first in my family to have a college degree.

    FPC will work with you to draft scholarship criteria that meet your specific objectives.  Scholarships can be crafted in a variety of ways, including but not limited to:

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the minimum amount required to open a scholarship fund?

To be maintained in perpetuity, Endowed Scholarship Funds require a minimum initial gift of $20,000. Private (Non-Endowed) Scholarship Funds require funding on an annual or semi-annual basis to remain active.

Can the donor set the criteria for the selection?

Yes. We will help you develop selection criteria most meaningful to you.  Scholarships can support students from specific schools, geographical areas, or students who are engaged in a specific program of study or activity.  You may also recommend criteria such as GPA, work experience, personal essay, or extracurricular activities be given more weight than other criteria in the selection process.  The only restriction is that the selection criteria must be objective and non-discriminatory.

Do students have to be in good standing to continue to receive the scholarship money?

Yes.  If a student does not meet the minimum requirements to receive the scholarship, they will not be awarded funds for the following semester.  In this case, the funds for the second semester would be re-awarded to another student.

Can I meet the student(s) I support?

Yes.  One of the requirements for students to receive a FPC Scholarship is to attend the annual Scholarship Banquet held in September.  All donors are invited to also attend the banquet where they will have the opportunity to meet their recipients.
