ABOUT FOLDS OF HONOR SCHOLARSHIPS
Scholarships are used to subsidize the costs of tuition, school books, fees, on-campus room and board, approved educational tutoring, and other approved educational expenses that a student’s school may deem appropriate.
Scholarships are awarded up to $5,000. Award amount is based on the “unmet need” calculated on the Financial Need page of the application.
