Recipients may use the award to fund coursework at accredited two or four year programs, including vocational programs, community colleges, and four year colleges or universities.

Payment of scholarship monies is coordinated by the Foundation to ensure each recipient receives the fullest benefit of the award. SCHOLARSHIP MONIES ARE MADE PAYABLE TO THE SCHOOL / INSTITUTION / COLLEGE DESIGNATED BY THE SCHOLARSHIP RECIPIENT.
