FMDA has been engaged in the awarding of scholarships since 1953.  To date, over $2.3 million has been given to many hundreds of qualified recipients to help defray the costs of their higher education.

At present, an FMDA scholarship is $2,500 with a 4-year value of $10,000.  We've been able to increase the amount of each scholarship from time to time as the cost of college keeps rising with no end in sight.

Although the Scholarship Fund began life within the structure of the First Mar Div Association, it became its own "arm's length" operation in 2007 with its own Board of Directors and FMDASF Bylaws.
