Scholarship funds provide opportunities for students - traditional and adult learners - along the West Coast of Florida to attend any accredited college, university or technical school. These funds are diverse, fulfilling the wishes of donors, both living and deceased, who want to provide needed financial support to promising scholars.
The Community Foundation considers adult learners to be students who are 24 years of age or older by December 31, 2019. Scholarships are not restricted to four-year universities; we consider higher education to be college, vocational or technical school, accredited courses of study for cosmetology, health care, etc. You are eligible for the foundation’s adult learner scholarship program if you are currently attending or enrolling in an accredited college or vocational school, are a current resident of Sarasota, Manatee, Charlotte, or DeSoto County, and will be 24 years of age or older by December 31, 2019.
