Broward Education Foundation raises money to provide scholarships for deserving graduating seniors from Broward County Public Schools to help them realize their dreams of attending college. Generously funded by donors and with support from Broward Advisors for Continuing Education (BRACE), qualifying Broward County students can receive scholarships to attend a community college, university or vocational school.

Since its creation, Broward Education Foundation’s Scholarship Fund has provided more than 5,000 scholarships to graduating high school seniors, valued at more than $13M.

Who Can Apply

Student selection is based on unmet financial need and additional criteria when specified. Scholarships are awarded to graduating seniors who have exhausted all other avenues for financial aid and still fall short of the financial means necessary to attend state or community college, university or vocational school. Broward County Public Schools graduating seniors are encouraged to apply for the many different scholarships that are offered through Broward Education Foundation.

When to Apply

Applications are accepted from October to April of each school year.

Throughout the year, BRACE Advisors encourage students to apply for scholarships. Community and business leaders, together with BRACE Advisors comprise the committee that conducts the review and selection of scholarship recipients.
