The AFMA Board of Directors established the scholarship program to honor Mr. O’Day who has served as AFMA’s President for three decades. The scholarship will be awarded to a candidate from an AFMA member company for studies in support of the American fiber industry.
Scholarship recipients receive a $5,000 award each year, totaling $20,000 for four years of study. Parents or guardian of an applying child must be an employee of an AFMA member company and/or organization. Students eligible for this scholarship may be high school seniors or students currently attending a college, university or technical school. Applicants must meet certain academic requirements to qualify. Financial need will be considered, but not as the primary basis for selection.
Any qualified applicants can contact Diane Bayatafshar with questions. The deadline to submit application is: Friday, February 6, 2015.
The AFMA Board of Directors will announce the 2015 scholarship recipient at its June 2015 meeting in Washington, D.C.
