American Board of Funeral Service Education is offering the National Scholarship Program to provide a financial award to students. Scholarships are for an academic year. The scholarship program is open for the students enrolled in funeral service or mortuary science programs in the United States.
The motivation behind establishing the National Scholarship Program is to help the students obtain a professional education in Funeral Service and Mortuary Science. The scholarship program will support students with financial benefits.
The American Board of Funeral Service Foundation (ABFSE) serves as the national academic accreditation agency for the college and university programs in Funeral Service and Mortuary Science Education. ABFSE’s roots go back to the 1940s. The ABFSE only became an autonomous agency in 1962. The accrediting function of ABFSE is recognized by the US Department and the Council on Higher Education Accreditation.
