Payback Requirements

Any recipient hereby agrees in consideration of this scholarship loan upon completion of their course of study of Mortuary Science that they shall repay this scholarship by working in a funeral home in the state of Oklahoma for a period of two (2) years.  They will seek employment in Oklahoma within a period of ninety (90) days, unless a longer period of time is agreed to by the Scholarship Committee and recipient.  Any required service in the Armed Forces of the United States will be given consideration by the Scholarship Committee for extending the time needed to complete the two-year period of work in an Oklahoma funeral home.  If recipient does not work in Oklahoma, I promise to pay back to the Oklahoma Funeral Directors Association Scholarship Fund the principal sum of the scholarship plus the passbook interest rate per annum from the date of disbursement to the College of Mortuary Science, plus all collections and attorney fees.

OFDA will send a questionnaire approximately every six months that must be completed and returned to the OFDA office.  Because of the Scholarship requirements, we must keep accurate records of your scholastic and professional progress from the time the scholarship is received and for a period of two years after graduation.
