The Centennial Scholars Research Grant
was created in honor of the Association’s 100th anniversary. The fund that supports this Grant was established in 2008, thanks to challenge grants given by AAFCS Past Presidents Peggy Meszaros and Sharon Nickols.
Stimulating new and needed research advances the application of family and consumer sciences concepts and the study of the profession itself. In order for members to carry out the mission of AAFCS, a scientific basis for practice is critical; thus, this grant was created to fund research which will be shared with AAFCS members and used to promote the AAFCS mission.
