WHAT IS THE ELIZABETH FORWARD STUDENT AID FUND?
The Elizabeth Forward Student Aid Fund (EFSAF) was created in 1962 as a non-profit corporation to solicit and raise funds to provide undergraduate loans to deserving students. In 1992, the Board of Directors for the
EFSAF dedicated the fund’s existence to the memory of Dr. Frank R. Bondi who was one of the founders of the organization and served as its president for 30 years.
In 2012, the Board of Directors voted to transition EFSAF from an organization that provides loans to an organization that provides scholarships. In 2015, EFSAF started to award annually three scholarships to graduating seniors of Elizabeth Forward High School (EFHS) who plan to continue their education as full-time students and two scholarships to EFHS alumni who are full-time undergraduate students studying at the sophomore, junior, or senior level.
One scholarship for graduating seniors is valued at $2,000 and two are valued at $1,000 each. Each scholarship for EFHS alumni is valued at $2,000. Recipients of the EFSAF scholarships must be residents of the Elizabeth Forward School District. To learn more about these scholarships and to get an application, click on the appropriate link below:
