The Educational Foundation offers the Ron Robertson Scholarship to pay for the

The ICCFA Next Generation Committee has created a scholarship fund through the ICCFA Educational Foundation and will be offering scholarships to the 2013 session of ICCFA University. These scholarships are provided with the help of a donation from the FCCFA. These scholarships will cover full tuition and meals as well as part of the recipients' hotel costs.  

In addition, through a generous donation by Merendino Cemetery Care, the committee has created a specially designated scholarship to be awarded to an active or veteran member of the armed forces or military reserves.

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 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.
