Insurance carrier independence
The scholarships awarded by SFM Foundation in its first four years involved claims handled by nearly 30 different insurers and self-insurers.
Scholarships are awarded regardless of which insurance company was involved in the workers' compensation claim. In fact, the vast majority of scholarships have been awarded to the families of injured workers who are not insured by SFM.
While SFM Companies played a key role in the founding of SFM Foundation and continues to be a valued sponsor of the organization, the program is designed to serve the entire community. Scholarship applicants are evaluated with no consideration for which insurance carrier was involved in the injury claim.
Below is a breakdown of the workers' compensation carriers covering the workers whose children have received SFM Foundation scholarships.
