Selected Educational Trust Announces New Sponsor for 2021 Second-Career Scholarship Program

The Selected Educational Trust is pleased to announce that Ring Ring Marketing has graciously offered to sponsor the entire Second-Career Scholarship Program for 2021!

“We are so deeply grateful to Ring Ring Marketing for their generous support of this program,” said Bea Pedersen, Executive Director of the Selected Educational Trust. “The Trust has been privileged to have awarded 45 second-career scholarships totaling $63,500 to Mortuary Science students who have chosen to enter this time-honored profession as a second career! Without the support of our generous donors and sponsors such as Ring Ring Marketing, these scholarships would not be possible.”

The Second-Career Scholarship Program is designed exclusively for individuals who aspire to work as a funeral director as a second-career. Scholarships are awarded in June and December of each year. The application deadline for the spring cycle is May 31. For eligibility requirements and to apply for a scholarship, go to Trust Second-Career Scholarship.

Selected Educational Trust’s mission is to provide the best educational opportunities for the advancement and support of all who work within the independent funeral service profession. To fulfill this mission, the Trust provides programs which offer scholarships to mortuary science students and funeral service professionals, education programs which bridge-the-gap between school and on-the-job training through its Institute for Exceptional Funeral Service, and networking and employment opportunities through its Workforce Development Centers.

Ring Ring Marketing  provides comprehensive online marketing solutions for funeral homes. RRM clients benefit from our mastery in both technology and marketing.
