Alfa Foundation has established a scholarship program to assist members of the Alabama Farmers Federation who plan to continue their education in college or vocational school programs in the state of Alabama. Scholarships are offered each year for full-time study at an accredited institution of the student’s choice.
This program is administered by Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarship, tuition assistance and other education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations, and individuals. Eligibility for individual programs is determined at the sole discretion of the sponsor, and eligible applications are reviewed by Scholarship America’s evaluation team. Awards are granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, gender, disability, or national origin.
Applicants of the Alfa Foundation Scholarship Program award must:
Note: Alfa Mutual Insurance employees and their dependent children are eligible to apply. A current Alabama Farmers Federation membership issued in the applicant’s name is required. Member must be in good standing with the Alabama Farmers Federation, Inc.
If selected as a recipient, the student will receive an award in the amount of $1,000. Up to 100 awards will be granted each year. Awards are not renewable, but students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements. Awards may be used for tuition, fees, books and supplies required for coursework only.
Awards are for undergraduate study only.
The program will be administered in full compliance with IRS Revenue Procedure 76-47.
Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of academic record, demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities, work experience, a statement of goals and aspirations, unusual personal or family circumstances, and an online recommendation.
Financial need is not considered.
Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any director, officer or employee of the Alfa Foundation, Alfa Mutual Insurance Company, its affiliates or subsidiaries, or the Alabama Farmers Federation, its affiliates or subsidiaries, play a part in the selection. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final and shall release Alfa Foundation, Alfa Mutual Insurance Company, its affiliates or subsidiaries, or the Alabama Farmers Federation, its affiliates or subsidiaries, and any of its respective directors, officers, or employees from liability regarding the selection of recipients.
All applicants will be notified in late-March via email. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients.
