How the award is applied:
The scholarship may be paid to your child’s school in one (1) or two (2) installments. After the Board’s determination, GFEF, Inc. will send a check payable to your child’s school for half the amount of the scholarship on or before September 1, of the upcoming school year. This will go toward the cost of tuition for the first half of the year (August through December), hereinafter referred to as First Semester. The second installment will be paid to your child’s school on or before December 31, of the upcoming school year. This will go toward the cost of tuition for the second half of the school year (January through June), hereinafter referred to as Second Semester. Or, the Board may decide to make both installments on or before September 1, of the upcoming school year, at their discretion.
If a student withdraws on or after the first day of classes begin in a semester, the student forfeits that semester of scholarship eligibility. The school shall return the scholarship to GFEF, Inc. at a prorated monthly rate. That is, the total amount of the scholarship divided by the number of months in the semester, less the number of months already attended in that semester.
