  • Must have been enrolled in AMLA prior to March 15, 2016, and currently in good standing (i.e. not on extended insurance).
  • Must be enrolled or accepted as a full-time student at an accredited college or university, pursuing an associate, bachelor, or post–graduate degree
  • Must have minimum of $2,000 permanent life insurance (term insurance does not qualify).
  • The program will award on a competitive basis one (1) Anna Mae Mannion Scholarship ($2,000.00) to a first-year college student, one (1) Dr. Rudolph M. Susel Scholarship ($2,000.00) to an advanced college student, one (1) Joseph A. and Albina M. Abram Scholarship ($2,000.00) to an advanced college student, and one (1) Frank J. Lausche Scholarship ($2,500.00) to a graduate student courtesy of the Frances and Jane S. Lausche Foundation.
  • Must complete the appropriate application form and return by the published deadline (postmarked by official deadline on application form).
  • Recipients of the four (4) named competitive scholarships are not eligible to receive a grant in the same year.
  • The program will award up to 100 post-secondary educational grants ($500 each) selected by lottery.
  • Those applying for the Mannion, Susel, Abram, and Lausche Scholarships and not receiving them may reapply with the same application attaching the Fall Semester transcript to be included in the lottery for the post-secondary grants.
  • A member may receive a maximum of four (4) grants from the program over the course of their post-secondary education
  • The Mannion, Susel, Abram, and Lausche scholarships will be sent directly to the college or university where the recipient is enrolled.
  • Grant recipients will receive a letter informing them of their selection following an initial review of the applications submitted and the conducting of a lottery if necessary. Each recipient is required to be a full-time student in good academic standing at an accredited institution in pursuit of a degree. Enrollment as a full-time student for any period prior or subsequent to the grading period for the Fall 2018 academic year will not satisfy the eligibility requirement for payment of a grant. The information submitted will be reviewed for compliance with the standards of the institution attended prior to mailing of the grant payment. Non-compliance will result in forfeiture of the grant which will then be made available to the next alternate selected in the lottery previously conducted.
  • Applicants enrolled as new members after January 1, 2005, must have one parent who is a member of AMLA under a permanent plan of insurance with a face value of at least $1,000.00 issued prior to the deadline for submitting their request for a scholarship/grant application. This rule does not apply to all applicants who are members of AMLA as of January 1, 2005. After January 1, 2009, the minimum face amount of permanent insurance sold by AMLA is $2,000.00. Any member who has an AMLA permanent insurance policy with a face value of at least $5,000.00 is exempt from the parental membership requirement.
  • Each of the Mannion, Susel, Abram, and Lausche Scholarships can be received one time only.
  • Any applicant who has never been awarded a grant but has applied for a grant twice will automatically receive a grant on the third try, provided all other eligibility requirements are satisfied.
