Scholarship available for Delaware manufactured housing residents

DELAWARE- First State Manufactured Housing Association (FSMHA) is offering four scholarship awards of up to $1,000 to Delaware residents of a manufactured home.

Qualifying candidates must be a legal resident of Delaware and a resident of a manufactured home for at least one year prior to the application.

Unlike many other scholarships that only target the high school senior, the FSMHA scholarship is open to the non-traditional student as well. Past winners include parents, grandparents, young adults – those continuing their educations and those returning after a hiatus.

Award recipients can reapply annually. Eligible candidates will be evaluated on scholastic record, financial need, essay and personal/professional recommendations. Deadline for submission is April 15 at 4.30 PM.

The scholarship may be used for any type of accredited two or four-year degree program, or for any accredited training, licensing or certification program. Full or part-time (at least 7 credits) enrollment in an accredited program is acceptable. The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) must be filled.

To get more information and to apply for the 2016-17 First State Manufactured Housing Association Scholarship, visit the Delaware Higher Education Office’s secure Student Account Access site at http://dedoe.schoolwires.net/Page/1463.

First-time users must establish an account and provide a valid email and mailing address before proceeding to the application.
