Tony Simmons, Little Giant Scholarship Fund chairman, congratulates Krista Weaver.
The creation of a scholarship fund is attractive to many donors and can be structured to benefit students at any education level or for a specific institution. Our staff handles the necessary paperwork and ensures that scholarships are distributed in an equitable manner.

How the CFCI Scholarship Program Works:
CFCI manages more than 60 scholarship funds. Each scholarship fund has its own application process. In addition to the application, each scholarship fund has a selection committee that determines the recipient(s) of that scholarship.
All information submitted will become the property of CFCI and will be kept confidential. Applicants will be notified on award status by mail. Additionally, the recipient names will be posted on the CFCI website. By applying for a CFCI scholarship, the applicant agrees to these terms and conditions.
