The Education Foundation is proud to announce 32 recipients of its new Jumpstart Your Future! scholarships. These remarkable students will receive one-year Florida Prepaid College Foundation scholarships, valued at more than $110,000, which will cover 30 credit hours at the Florida state college tuition rate. A full list of recipients follows on page two.
“We’re so proud of these remarkable students,” said Jennifer Vigne, president and CEO of the Education Foundation. “And we are honored to provide this opportunity to high school seniors who most need extra support to realize their dreams of a college degree.”
All 32 students, in addition to receiving the scholarship, will attend three workshops in areas such as financial aid, life skills, and career explorations. These workshops will help students prepare for life after high school.
The Education Foundation launched Jumpstart Your Future! scholarships in February of this year through the creation of the Shanney / Richardson Scholarship Fund. Thanks to generous donor support and a partnership with the Florida Prepaid College Foundation, the Education Foundation can help more low-income students pursue educational goals after high school.
