FFC Scholarship Award Program

FFC Scholarship Award Program2019-06-06T13:59:50+00:00

Since being established in 1999, the FFC scholarship award program has distributed 66 scholarships totaling $144,000. The program annually awards post-secondary education scholarships (college or vocational/technical school) to promising students born with a facial difference. High school graduates or students currently attending college who are residents of New England (Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont) are eligible to apply. The Foundation selects award recipients based on their academic performance, extracurricular activities, and community service.  Since 2015, FFC has dedicated $20,000 to be awarded in scholarships each year.

At our annual Scholarship Awards Presentation in June, we celebrate the accomplishments of the recipients. FFC is honored and proud to be able to play a small role in helping their dreams to come true as they move through their college experiences. Many of our scholarship recipients return to FFC as volunteers; helping at events, offering support to younger generations and establishing themselves as mentors and role models.
