SARASOTA, FL (February 23, 2018) – Bogati Urn Company is proud to announce the company has established the Bogati Urn Company Scholarship Fund. The scholarship will provide funeral service or mortuary science program students with financial awards ranging from $500 to $2,500 per school year.
“Since launching our Bogati Gives Back program in 2016, we’ve chosen groups and organizations of certain significance, like Veterans and local community institutions. Beginning this year, we’re adding education to the list,” said Andrea Bogard LeBlanc. “We think it’s important to support those who are working hard, learning, and preparing for their careers, especially those who have a calling for a profession rooted in care and compassion like ours.”
Applications are now being accepted for the inaugural Bogati Urn Company Scholarship award, which will be available for the Fall 2018 term. The deadline for consideration is July 31, 2018.
To be eligible for consideration, applicants must be U.S. citizens who have already completed one or more terms of study in funeral service or mortuary science education. To be considered for a full award, students should have at least one term or semester remaining in his/her program. Students with less than a full term of study remaining will be considered for partial awards.
In addition to these requirements, students must complete all forms and follow all procedures as outlined online at: https://bogatiurns.com/scholarship/. Students may apply for consideration once per calendar year.
If chosen, the award will be applied directly to the winning student’s tuition charges and can be used for tuition, books, or other program required supply costs.
“In our research we found there are a variety of scholarships offered by state funeral director associations, colleges, and funeral service organizations, but we weren’t able to find any offered by suppliers,” Bogard LeBlanc said. “We’re proud to be paving the way on this and giving back to the funeral industry that both supports our business and continues to help us grow.”
