PROMOTING OUR PROFESSION

The AFCCA is dedicated to promoting the further development of professional, ethical, responsive death care providers that are a credit to the industry.

As a way to promote our profession, we offer two scholarship opportunities.

William Aaron Scholarship Program

The William Aaron Scholarship Program was designed to assist and enhance the success of a current Mortuary Science student at Mesa Community College.

Each year, AFCCA offers a scholarship to a 2nd year student, with a B or better grade point average. The scholarship is valued at $1,000. The application process begins in August, with a March 31st due date. 1st year students may apply to receive funding in their 2nd year.

Scholarship winner will be announced and presented at the May Mortuary Sciences Graduation each year.

Son/Daughter Scholarship

The funeral business has traditionally been a family business. Many AFCCA members are part of a funeral, crematory, or cemetery family. We wish to honor and further this tradition by offering a Son/Daughter Scholarship. Children of death care industry workers who are also studying to be in the profession may apply for this scholarship, valued at $500.

Students must be attending an accredited program and have a B or better grade point average.

The application process begins in August and must be submitted by March 31st to be awarded at the May Mortuary Sciences Graduation each year.
