College Fund of Pinellas County, Inc. Scholarship Application

The College Fund of Pinellas County is a non-profit, tax-exempt organization run entirely by volunteers. We raise money in order to help financially disadvantaged Pinellas County residents who have excellent scholastic potential, but insufficient funds to obtain a bachelor’s degree and thereby improve themselves, their family’s living standard, and their role in the community.

Grant recipients receive $1,200 per year. Once a student is selected, remains academically qualified, continues to receive a Pell grant, and continues to carry 12 or more hours, that student is supported until he or she receives a maximum of $4,800 or completes a bachelor’s degree, whichever comes first.

1. Be a resident of Pinellas County.

2. Be a citizen of the United States of America.

4. Plan to attend a regionally accredited college or university in the upcoming school year.

5. Plan to be enrolled full time carrying at least 12 credit hours

6. Plan to receive a bachelor’s degree.

7. Have a high school GPA of 2.5 or better OR a college GPA of 2.0 or better.
