Scholarship Deadline March 6

All scholarship applications must be completed by Monday, March 6, before midnight. Students can find the application on our website at GulfCoastCF.org/scholarships, and they need to complete only one application to be considered for all Gulf Coast scholarships for which they qualify.

Through our scholarship program, Gulf Coast assists students of all ages in pursuing higher education at an accredited college, university, or technical school. Applicants must reside in Sarasota County, Charlotte County, or Boca Grande, and they must plan to attend a qualifying postsecondary institution during the 2017-18 academic year. Full requirements and other useful information can be found on our Frequently Asked Questions page. 

Last year, Gulf Coast awarded 451 scholarships totaling nearly $545,000. Since 1997, when our board of directors established the foundation’s scholarship program, we have awarded $6.7 million in scholarships.
