Parkland, Florida

As many students and their parents prepare for college, it can cause a lot of stress in finding help in filling out Student loan forms or even seeking out resources that may lessen the burden of tuition. Offsetting costs is vital to many as the idea of carrying any sort of college debt isn’t something many prefer to do. For the upcoming college students and even parents of students, it’s essential to know where you can find these resources.

Applying for scholarships is just as important as filling out that FASFA form. To make things a little easier for students, the City of Parkland has three different awards for school-related expenses. One of the prerequisites is that the student must live in Parkland and be graduating in 2020.

Here are the Scholarships:

  • Community Advisory Board Scholarship – This scholarship provides up to $1,000, depending on the number of recipients that are awarded. It recognizes those students with outstanding civic or community service hours that are above the 40-minimum required by the scholarship.
  • Allstate Foundation Scholarship – In honor of the lives lost at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, this scholarship provides two scholarships at $500 to those who share interests as those whose lives were lost on February 14th.
  • Engineering Scholarship – This is a $3,000 scholarship for those high scholar seniors wanting to pursue a scholarship on civil engineering or related field. The City of Parkland established this scholarship as they believe in producing the next generation of engineers.

The City of Parkland considers education an essential tool for its community and offers scholarships to see its residents excel in the community. As you head off to college, be sure to apply for these scholarships. Don’t forget to provide all the relevant information needed for each award so you can be considered.
