SCHOLARSHIPS AWARDED BY ICCFA
The ICCFA Educational Foundation's Scholarship Awards are presented annually to selected recipients. Applicants must be ICCFA members in good standing and employed in the cemetery, cremation and funeral profession for a minimum of two years.
The ICCFA Next Generation Committee has created a scholarship fund through the ICCFA Educational Foundation and will be offering scholarships to the 2015 session of ICCFA University. These scholarships will cover full tuition and meals as well as part of the recipients' hotel costs. In addition, the NextGen committee has created the Merendino Veterans Scholarship, a specially designated scholarship to be awarded to an active or veteran member of the armed forces or military reserves. This scholarship is named after Gino Merendino due to his initial and ongoing support of hiring veterans in our profession.
The Central States Cemetery Association made an endowment to the ICCFA Educational Foundation in 2009 to establish a scholarship award to ICCFAU for applicants from the states of Arkansas, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma and Wisconsin.
The Western Cemetery Alliance made an endowment to the ICCFA Educational Foundation in 2010 in general support of the Foundation.
