ISSA Chapters can make contributions to the ISSAEF that will go directly to scholarship grants made by the Foundation on their behalf. ISSA chapters are encouraged to make non-refundable donations to the Education Fund. If the donation is sufficient to cover an entire scholarship or grant, the chapter may designate a regional group of colleges/universities for which a student scholarship will be granted. Further, provided the donation is sufficient for an entire scholarship or grant, of a size to be determined by the chapter in consultation with the Foundation, the scholarship or grant can be awarded in the chapter’s name if so desired. The Foundation will manage the process of selecting recipients of these awards, and will distribute the award on the chapter’s behalf.
