AN E-NEWSLETTER FROM THE FOUNDATION FOR ENHANCING COMMUNITIES

2012 Scholarship Season Review
The Foundation for Enhancing Communities (TFEC) is pleased to announce another successful scholarship season has come to a close. Through the more than 80 scholarships currently administered by TFEC, nearly $600,000 in scholarships was awarded to nearly 330 students.

The Foundation, through its many scholarship programs, assists students each year through scholarship grants. Scholarship applicants demonstrate individual excellence in areas such as community service, leadership, sports, music, academics, and other unique characteristics. Visit www.tfec.org this fall to review available scholarships, eligibility criteria, and 2013 deadlines.

The Foundation is a partner with American Education Services (AES)/PHEAA’s Partnerships for Access to Higher Education (PATH) Program. Scholarship recipients are eligible to have their awards matched on a dollar-for-dollar basis by AES/PHEAA’s PATH Program. PHEAA may match grant funds for TFEC scholarship recipients who are enrolled in an approved PA college or career school, who are state grant recipients, and who demonstrate financial need. The match provides last dollar support for tuition, books, and fees. Scholarship recipient information is submitted by TFEC staff; no additional paperwork is required by students in order to be eligible for a PATH Program match. For additional information on this program, please visit http://www.pheaa.org.

All scholarships have been established by generous local individuals, corporations or organizations to assist students with their educational pursuits.  Whether honoring loved ones or providing for specific communities, each scholarship expresses a deep belief in the power of education to help today’s youth achieve their dreams. For more information on how to start your own scholarship fund, contact Jennifer Doyle, Director of Development and Community Investment at jdoyle@tfec.org.
