AVON PARK, Fla. – Nov. 6, 2023 – South Florida State College (SFSC) received a $6,000 grant from the William G. and Marie Selby Foundation, Inc. to provide scholarships for students at SFSC’s DeSoto Campus in Arcadia. These funds will be matched dollar for dollar through the SFSC Foundation, bringing the total funds for scholarships to $12,000.
Annual scholarships will be awarded up to $1,500 for full-time students, up to $1,125 for students enrolled between 9 and 11 hours, and up to $750 for students enrolled between 6 and 8 hours.
The criteria for obtaining a scholarship through the Selby Foundation grant is that the application must be based on financial need and the student must be a resident of DeSoto County and a graduate of Desoto County High School, must maintain a minimum of a 3.0 GPA to be considered for renewal, and must be accepted into or enrolled in a degree program at the SFSC DeSoto Campus.
Scholarships from the Selby Foundation grant are available for Spring Term 2024. If a student would like to apply for a scholarship for Summer Term 2024, they must be registered for summer classes by the second week of January 2024.
“So many of our community members are ready to move forward with their education and, yet, feel they cannot afford it,” said Asena Mott, director of the SFSC DeSoto Campus. “The generosity of the Selby Foundation makes this possible. It’s going to turn regrets into possibilities, and THAT is the start of making our community better.”
“Our DeSoto Campus is honored that the Selby Foundation has stepped up in such a big way to help our students,” said Mott. “These students are giving their best efforts in making strides for their futures. At the same time, they face many barriers. As our community begins to receive more extensive internet access, eligible students can use their scholarship funds to purchase internet services. They can also use scholarship money to purchase their own computer, books, and gas to travel to and from the College.”
To apply for a scholarship through the Selby Foundation grant, students are encouraged to speak with a student advisor at the SFSC DeSoto Campus at 2251 NE Turner Avenue in Arcadia or call 863-993-1757.
