Students must be enrolled in the Postsecondary Mentoring Program to apply for the Student Assistance Fund. The maximum award per student cannot exceed $500 total and a total of two disbursements* while in the program.
Funds may be used to purchase books, cover fees, and any other approved incidentals to ensure continued education.
*All awards are at the discretion of the Education Foundation of Sarasota County and may be denied. If extenuating circumstances arise, students may be considered for a one-time distribution for a larger amount if the obstacle would otherwise cause the student to step away from their education and the student can demonstrate that they have taken all reasonable actions to secure the needed funds via other means.
