Alfa Foundation Awards $100,000 in College Scholarships 
September 1, 2023 |

The Alfa Foundation recently awarded $100,000 in scholarships to 100 students attending colleges and universities across Alabama. Recipients, who hail from 44 counties and will attend 23 different academic institutions, each received $1,000 from the Foundation to use on tuition, fees, books or supplies in the 2023-24 academic year.

Since 2014, the Alfa Foundation has awarded $950,000 to deserving students through its scholarship program, which is administered by Kaleidoscope.

“We are proud to support this outstanding group of students as they further their education within the state of Alabama,” said Alfa Insurance President Jimmy Parnell. 

Scholarships were awarded based on grade-point average, participation in school and community activities, honors, work experience and future goals. To qualify, students must be enrolled — or planning to enroll — in a full-time accredited program at a two-year or four-year college, university or vocational-technical school located in Alabama.
