Students are encouraged to apply for the City’s Martin Luther King, Jr. Scholarship, which is now available.
The Martin Luther King, Jr. Scholarship Fund is open to Coral Springs high school students who demonstrate a financial need. This scholarship is offered regardless of ethnicity. In past years, through the Committee's efforts, more than 150 high school seniors have received scholarships in varying amounts based primarily on financial need. The students will apply the scholarship money towards their tuition costs at a university or other educational institution of their choice. The scholarship is available to high school seniors who live in Coral Springs and attend one of the five local high schools: J.P. Taravella, Stoneman Douglas, Coral Springs Charter, Coral Glades and Coral Springs High School.
The purpose of the scholarship program is "to provide funds to needy, local students who, through their words and actions, embody the spirit of Dr. King's teachings." Although preference is given to students with financial need, attention is also given to the quality of community service performed by the applicants.
The deadline for receiving scholarship applications is Friday, March 16. Hand-delivered applications should be dropped off by 5 p.m. on Friday, March 16. Mailed applications should be postmarked no later than March 20. Selected students will be interviewed in mid-April. Please send completed application to Joyce Campos, Community Relations Manager, 9551 W. Sample Road, Coral Springs, FL 33065.
Since the scholarship program is entirely dependent upon the generous contributions of individuals and corporations, your donation to this cause is very important. All donations are tax-deductible.
