FUEL YOUR FUTURE
Petroleum and Scholarships are in high demand. Thanks to the hard work and generosity of our members, we have both.
FPMA cares about the success of our members and their families. For 36 years, we have granted academic scholarships exclusively to owners, employees and their children to attend college and become successors of the family business or entrepreneurs of their own.
If you fall into this close-knit community and can show achievement in the classroom with a GPA of 3.5 or higher, you are at a great advantage. While most public and private scholarship dollars are open to thousands of eligible high school and college students, our support stays within the Florida Petroleum Marketers and Convenience Store family.
Scholarship applications are taken each year in the late Spring.
To receive an FPMA Scholarship, an applicant must be a Florida resident meeting one of the following criteria:
- owns or is employed by an FPMA member company
- is a financial dependent of an owner of an FPMA member company
- is a financial dependent of an employee of an FPMA member company
- must enroll in a minimum course load of twelve (12) hours
The FPMA Scholarship will be awarded during the 2017 Sunshine EXPO® scheduled for July 20 - 24 at the Gaylord Palms Resort in Kissimmee, Florida. The Recipients’ hotel accommodations are taken care of by FPMA for the night before the award presentation. Applicants receiving the FPMA Scholarship Award will be notified by email by no later than the COB on May 17th. The Scholarship ceremony will take place Sunday, July 23rd 7:30am – 9:00am at the Gaylord Palms Resort.
