Each CFNIL scholarship is created with a specific purpose in mind. As you complete the application, the system automatically matches you with every scholarship for which you are eligible and will present you with a specific written prompt for each. You're encouraged to craft a unique response to each prompt to show the reviewers why you're the best candidate for that scholarship.
Scholarship Background and Intent
Established through a bequest from Flora June Fredine in memory of her son who died in 1945 after serving with the Twenty-Eighth Army Division during the liberation of Europe. The scholarship exists to provide awards to “worthy scholars who otherwise might not receive a college or university education.”
