Foundation Promotes Participation in Unigo Scholarship Opportunty
Those of you who have grandkids nearing the end of their high school experience and looking ahead to selecting a destination for the next phase of their education certainly need all the help they can get...and that's where you come in! Guidance is critical in this process and, of course, that includes the search for as many avenues of funding assistance as possible. While your life experiences can help your grandkids round out their choices for fields of study, you can also be a great help to them in finding sources of financial support, like scholarships.

Searching for scholarships can be an exhausting process. It can be frustrating and stressful for the students as they deal with applications and the development of supporting materials many sources of funding require. So, to perhaps help you out on this front, the AMAC Foundation was recently invited to promote one potential scholarship source that may be of interest to you, especially in its simplicity., an online service referred to as the World Wide Web's "largest resource of information to find, get in and pay for college," has made available a $10,000 scholarship contest for students from any discipline.

Requirement for entry into the contest is simple...complete a 250-word essay in answer to the question, "Would you rather be smart, funny, or rich? Why?" The deadline is December 31, 2022 and the winner will be announced on March 31, 2023. For more information on the scholarship opportunity, visit by clicking here...

Foundation Makes Guest Appearance on AMAC Weekly News
AMAC Foundation was represented on the March 26 edition of the AMAC Weekly News, with Executive Director Gerry Hafer joining radio and cable television talk show host Ben Ferguson for a discussion on key events at the Foundation. Hafer discussed the continuing upward trajectory in activity on the Foundation's Social Security Advisory Service, noting that 2021 volume represented a more than 33% increase over 2020 and a more than 93% increase over 2019's level. He noted further that 2022 volume is continuing at record levels, well more than 600 per month.

Hafer also explained the newest feature of the Foundation's Social Security-related public outreach -- the Social Security Instant Academy program launched in mid-March. The new program, he reported, features brief -- less than two-minute -- audio recordings covering specific program aspects, such as "Do you know what your Full Retirement Age is?" The recordings are being posted on the Foundation's Facebook page and stored on the Foundation's website (Audios page) bi-weekly.

The discussion also included a review of work the Foundation is doing in the area of Veterans outreach, including progress on the "For Veterans" searchable data base of programs, services, and information important to Veterans and their families.
