The Federation of American Consumers and Travelers (FACT) have excited to announce the 2017 Educational Grant Program. The grant is offered to graduate students from an accredited public, private or parochial high school (or equivalent). This program is primarily designed for the so-called ‘average’ student. It is for the individual who may never have made the honor roll or who didn’t excel on the athletic field, but who sincerely wants to obtain a higher education, but is often overlooked by other scholarship sources. Winners of the “Educational Grant Program” will receive approximately $75,000 respectively.
The Federation of American Consumers and Travelers (FACT) was founded in 1984 by a small group of Midwesterners. For more than two decades, FACT has been developing and refining a benefits package which has true meaning to the value-conscious consumer.
