The FPEA is proud to collaborate with the FPEA Homeschool Foundation. The Foundation board of directors also includes Susie Beaty (District 13 Director), Allison DeMarco (former District 12 Director) and Sandy Wagner (District 14 Director). Several scholarships are available for pre-graduate and post-graduate FPEA members.
To apply for any of these scholarships, complete and submit the appropriate application along with any required supporting materials.
