Traditional Scholarships

The Community Foundation of Sarasota County believes an investment in education is an investment in our community's future. And we believe that all who wish to further their education and increase future potential for success should have an equal chance to take advantage of the opportunities available to them.

Special Note:  Students are only required to complete one traditional application to be eligible for any of  the scholarships for which they qualify for.  A traditional scholarship fund which requires a different application at this time is the Father Connie Dougherty Scholarship.
