One thought on “USACFA Scholarship To Include Those Pursuing Certification Degrees!”

  1. I have cystic fibrosis, in order to find a job that I could do at home I took a online class through Worcester State University. I completed a medical billing/coding certification in may 2016 and pass my license test in July 2016 . Would this qualify still for the scholarship?
