American Foreign Service Association

American Foreign Service Association scholarships support high school seniors and college undergraduates of Foreign Service employees (active-duty, retired and deceased). They offer one time only AFSA Academic/Art Merit Awards and renewable need based Financial Aid Scholarships, of which AFSA administers 13-15 annual DACOR Bacon House Foundation Scholarships each year. Unfortunately, grandchildren of Foreign Service employees are not eligible for these awards. Awards range from $1,500 to $3,500 via Heyward G. Hill and Harriet C. Thurgood DACOR Bacon House Foundation Scholarships. Applications submission deadline is Feb. 6 of each year. Visit AFSA's Scholarship Program web page at for complete details, or contact Lori Dec at or (202) 944 5504 or 1 (800) 704 2372, ext. 504 (toll free).
