Foundation for Rural Service Scholarship Program
The Foundation for Rural Service (FRS) offers an annual college scholarship program to help further higher education among rural youth. Students are encouraged to return to contribute to their rural communities when they complete their education.
FRS awards 30 one-time $2,500 scholarships to students for their first year of college, university or vocational-technical school. Each student is sponsored by an NTCA member company such as Kingdom Telephone Company. FRS funds $2,000 of each scholarship, and the sponsoring company awards the remaining $500.
Seniors whose parents are Kingdom Telephone or Kingdom Technology Solutions customers may apply by obtaining an application from their guidance counselor. Application forms may also be downloaded from the FRS web site at http://www.frs.org/youth-programs/college-scholarship-program.
