FPMA Scholarship


Petroleum and Scholarships are in high demand. Thanks to the hard work and generosity of our members, we have both.

FPMA cares about the success of our members and their families. For 34 years, we have granted academic scholarships exclusively to owners, employees and their children to attend college and become successors of the family business or entrepreneurs of their own.

If you fall into this close-knit community and can show achievement in the classroom with a GPA of 3.5 or higher, you are at a great advantage. While most public and private scholarship dollars are open to thousands of eligible high school and college students, our support stays within the Florida Petroleum Marketers and Convenience Store family.

Scholarship applications are taken each year in the late Spring.

To receive an FPMA Scholarship, an applicant must be a Florida resident meeting one of following criteria

  • owns or is employed by an FPMA member company
  • is a financial dependent of an owner of an FPMA member company
  • is a financial dependent of an employee of an FPMA member company
  • must enroll in a minimum course load of twelve (12) hours

The FPMA Scholarship will be awarded during the 2016 Sunshine EXPO scheduled for July 29th - August 1st at the Orlando World Center Marriott in Orlando, Florida. The Recipients’ hotel accommodations are taken care of by FPMA for the night before the award presentation on Saturday, July 30th. Applicants receiving the FPMA Scholarship Award will be notified by email by no later than the COB on May 27rd. The Scholarship ceremony will take place Sunday, July 31st 8:30am – 10:00am at the Orlando World Center Marriott.
