Alfa Foundation Awards $100,000 In College Scholarships
August 12, 2022 |

By Mary Wilson

Alabama students who will be the state’s next engineers, nurses and teachers — among other business professionals — earned $1,000 college scholarships from the Alfa Foundation.

The 100 scholarship recipients hail from 52 counties and will attend 21 institutions.

“It’s important for young people to get a good education,” said Alfa Insurance President Jimmy Parnell. “These students represent the future of our state, and I’m glad we can support them through these scholarships.”

Scholarships are awarded based on academics, participation in school and community activities, honors, work experience and goals. The program is administered through Scholarship America. 

Throughout its history, the Alfa Foundation Scholarship Program has awarded $850,000 to students studying at Alabama technical schools, colleges and universities. The award may be used toward tuition, fees, books or supplies.
