The ACEF Scholarship Fund Program provides scholarships to graduating high school seniors from Anniston, Oxford, Saks, and Wellborn who will pursue a course of study at either a two-year or four-year educational institution.  Need and participation in ACEF's Youth Coalition will also be considered.

For 2020, we had a total of 11 Scholarship Recipients, with awards ranging in amounts from $1000 - $1,500 per award. This award is renewable but must be reapplied for each time.  These funds are not guaranteed to be the same each time a new application is submitted.
