PACE Center for GirlsMany donors care about education and choose to create scholarship funds with Manatee Community Foundation.

Scholarship funds provide opportunities for students -traditional and non-traditional- who reside in Manatee County to attend any accredited college, university or technical school. These funds are diverse, fulfilling the wishes of donors, both living and deceased, who want to provide needed financial support to promising scholars.

The name of scholarship funds and the scholarship award criteria are determined by the donor at the time the fund is created.

Applicants must qualify through the foundation’s scholarship process, which is monitored by volunteer scholarship committees who are always mindful of fulfilling donors’ wishes. Each year, our ability to help graduating seniors and non-traditional students connect with their educational dreams continues to grow.


Scholarship Applications

The Foundation has a growing number of scholarship opportunities for both traditional and non traditional students. Traditional students are high school seniors or those who are 25 years old or younger who are in college presently. Non traditional students tend to be resuming school, vocational or technical training after a period of work.
