Second-Career Scholarship

Each year Selected Independent Funeral Homes offers a new opportunity for its members to enroll in The Leadership Academy, a two-year structured leadership training program that engages participants through interactive conference calls, personal coaching calls and face-to-face experiences.

The Leadership Academy Scholarship is awarded annually and covers the recipient's registration fee for the entire two-year term, as well as a fixed-amount reimbursement payment to help cover the cost of books. The total estimated value of this scholarship at the end of two years is $4,800.


Any individual currently employed full-time at a firm maintaining full membership in Selected Independent Funeral Homes who is not a majority owner of the firm is eligible to apply.

To Apply

Applicants must submit a completed application—including all requested information—by January 31. Applications will be reviewed by the Educational Trust Board and voted on, with a majority approval vote required. A submitted application is not a guarantee of a scholarship award.
