Each spring, The Foundation provides scholarships to deserving graduating seniors who plan to attend universities, state colleges, technical colleges or vocational programs. Scholarships are privately funded by donors and the business community, are managed by The Foundation for Seminole County Public Schools and are viewed as an investment in the education of the students of Seminole County.

If you are interested in establishing a scholarship fund in memory of your loved, to leave your own legacy, or through your organization to show a commitment to the community, please e-mail the Foundation Program Manager or 407-320-0119.

Student Eligibility

Every graduating senior from a high school of Seminole County Public Schools is eligible to apply for a scholarship offered by The Foundation. Please read the criteria for each scholarship carefully, as requirements vary (i.e., high school attended, field of study, required essay, extracurricular activities, GPA, etc.)

How to Apply

The Foundation will award over 50+ scholarships to the SCPS Class of 2024 valued at over $150,000 this spring with recipients from all 10 high schools!

SCPS seniors can begin their senior scholarship application at the FSCPS AwardSpring site. The deadline to apply is Wednesday, March 20, 2024 at 11:59 p.m..

Foundation scholarships range in value and while most are available to all SCPS High Schools, some are specific to Hagerty, Lake Brantley, Lake Mary, Lyman, Seminole, and Winter Springs. Some opportunities focus on Areas of Study such as Trade Programs, Education, Nursing, the Arts, Engineering and STEM fields or to students who’ve participated in athletic programs, arts programs, extracurricular activities, and community service. Other factors are considered such as students who have overcome challenges, experienced homelessness, demonstrated financial need, or currently live in the Midway community of Sanford.
