The College Fund provides funds to supplement the college scholarships of qualified students. Grants are $1,000 per school year ($500 per semester) until the student receives a maximum of $4,000 or graduates with a bachelor's degree, whichever comes first; however, retention in the program is dependent upon a review of student grades, course load, and financial need after each semester. Our sponsored students have attended colleges and universities throughout Florida and the nation.
