2010 MFA Foundation Scholarship Program

Established in 1958, the Foundation is a nonprofit, philanthropic organiza- tion. Its primary purpose is to provide educational opportunities to high school seniors in the MFA trade territory. Since 1965, the Foundation's foremost mission has been providing MFA Foundation scholarships, which have provided financial assistance to more than 10,000 students totaling more than $10 million.

One scholarship is offered annually at each high school where a participating MFA Agri Services Center, MFA Oil Company propane plant, MFA Oil Company bulk plant or other MFA agency is located.
Local committees select the scholarship winners, who are announced at gradu- ation ceremonies. The majority of the scholarships are $2,000 and may be used at any college or university.

Overall, this year some 337 high school seniors received scholarships co-sponsored by the MFA Foundation and local MFA locations. These scholarships were worth more than $600,000.
