Each year, with the support of many generous donors, Brevard Schools Foundation provides scholarships to deserving students to help them achieve their dream of a college education. Scholarships range from $250.00 to $3,000.00. Some are multi-year awards, like the Grumman Retiree Club Scholarship, in which income eligible students who are studying in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) field and maintain a 3.0 GPA may receive awards for an additional three years. Individual scholarships are published in a Scholarship Opportunities booklet published by the Foundation and distributed to students, along with the application form. This year more than 55 scholarships are available totaling nearly $70,000. It is expected that more than 400 applications will be submitted this year.
