The mission of the scholarship organization is to identify students that have a heart for service, have a work ethic similar to Fred, and want to pursue paths that are related to trade, service and flight - as Fred did in his life.
The Fred G. Scholarships that are awarded are focused on three career areas.
The first is a Trade Scholarship.
Fred never attended college, but worked in his father’s print shop. Eventually he took over and grew the company into a successful business. Though he had the opportunity to attend a trade school, he was also working in his fathers’ print shop and was told he already knew more than what they would teach. The spirit of this scholarship is to assist those students that will work with their hands and/or with the public.
The second is a Military Scholarship.
The spirit of the award will be to honor and recognize families that have sacrificed or support youth that are making the commitment to serve their country.
The third is a Remote Pilot Certification Scholarship
This is for students that desire to obtain their Remote Pilot Certificate from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), which will allow them to fly a small Unmanned Aircraft System (sUAS) commercially.
