Solution Partners Scholarship Program

The Solution Partners Scholarship Program currently awards 12 annual scholarships valued at $2500 each to the children of regular, full-time employees of AHFA member companies, including its subsidiaries, the International Casual Furnishings Association and the Solution Partners supplier division. Eight one-year scholarships are awarded based on financial need and merit of the student. Additionally, there are four merit-based scholarships that are based on leadership attributes and academic performance. Applicants must be 21 years of age or under and enrolled in or planning to enroll in a four-year college or university, a junior or community college or a vocational or technical school. The scholarships are issued in two equal installments in July and December of the year in which the award is granted. Checks are made payable to the educational institution.
