 The Indiana Funeral Directors Association Awards 4 Scholarships

Frank W. Moore Scholarship • 2 Indiana Funeral Education Foundation Scholarships •

Executive Director’s Scholarship

Students may apply for all four scholarships and must complete an application for each scholarship.

The Frank W. Moore Scholarship is in memory of Frank W. Moore to recognize the understanding of, and dedication to, the philosophy and standards of funeral service to a deserving mortuary science student. Selection is done by a committee of the Indiana Funeral Education Foundation. The scholarship is in the amount of $1000.

The Indiana Funeral Education Foundation is committed to excellence in funeral service education and awards two scholarships. One is in honor of IFDA’s first president, Isaac Ball and is in the amount of $2,000. The other scholarship is for $1,000. They are awarded to qualified funeral service students who plan to complete their education and then serve the public in their chosen career in the state of Indiana. The Isaac Ball Scholarship is funded by an endowment funded by Isaac Ball Fellow donors to the foundation and the other is funded by the foundation itself.

The Executive Director’s Scholarship is provided by IFDA Executive Director Curtis Rostad, through the Indiana Funeral Education Foundation. Actual selection is done by a committee of the Foundation. It is to assist a qualified non-traditional student with their funeral service education. A “non-traditional” student is defined as one starting or returning to college after a break of at least 5 years from high school or another college. This would include those entering funeral service as a second career, following military service, or starting their career after raising children. Evidence of need will be considered but is not a requirement for award. The scholarship is for $1,000.
