Fawell & Fawell

Student Scholarship


Deadline for the Fall 2024
semester is August 21, 2024

In today's world, college students do not have it easy. In addition to the skyrocketing costs of college tuition, the amounts students will need to pay for expenses such as housing and transportation have also increased significantly. Many students struggle to cover these costs and ensure that they can receive the proper education and pursue their career goals. Students who attend college in states or regions of the country that are far away from their families will often face additional challenges and increased expenses, and they may be concerned that they will be unprepared to address these concerns.

At Fawell & Fawell, we understand the issues that affect students who travel to other states to attend college, and we have created a scholarship program to provide assistance for these students. Through the Fawell & Fawell Out-of-State Student Scholarship, we award $1,000 each semester to a qualified student who will be pursuing educational opportunities in a location outside of the state where they attended high school or where their parents currently live. Scholarship winners can use this money to pay for tuition, housing, other educational costs, or transportation-related expenses.


If you are planning to apply for the Fawell & Fawell Out-of-State Student Scholarship, please see the eligibility criteria and application instructions below. The deadline to apply for the Fall 2024 scholarship is August 21, 2024. Please contact us at with any questions you may have about our scholarship program or the application process.
