Thanks to our generous donors contributing to more than 90 Scholarship Funds at the Foundation we are able to provide students in Southwest Florida the opportunity to apply for College Scholarships. We awarded over $800,000 in financial support to 150 individual College Scholarships in 2017 to both high school graduates and undergraduate college students, of which 20 are multi-year awards.
Scholarships are available for high school seniors wanting to continue their education at the vocational/technical school level, university or community college, as well as for undergraduate and graduate students continuing their post-secondary education.
