Donors Generate New Scholarships at Eastern Florida State College Foundation
April 14, 2016 - Donors have created three new scholarships at the Eastern Florida State College Foundation, which continues to grow and provide more students an opportunity to receive a higher education.
In all, the Foundation has awarded 382 student scholarships this academic year from a portfolio of 300 named scholarships and a more than $20 million endowment.
The new scholarships are:
- Economic Development Commission of Florida’s Space Coast Certified Production Technician Scholarship for students seeking certification as a Production Technician.
- City of Titusville Certified Production Technician Scholarship, which is awarded to four Titusville residents, or employees of the City of Titusville, seeking certification as a Production Technician.
- Pridmore Family Scholarship Fund for Early Childhood Education in memory of Merle Swann, a life-long public school teacher, for students enrolled in the Early Childhood Education Certification Program.
“We’re very grateful to our new donors and everyone who continues to support the Foundation and our goal to transform lives through education,” said Foundation Director Jennie Kriete.
“We’ve awarded $2.5 million in scholarships to over 2,500 students the past five years. But more scholarships are needed, so come grow with us. Your donations will promote academic excellence and success for Brevard County students to help them achieve their dreams.”
