16 Area Schools Will Each be Awarded $1,000 Scholarships in 2021
We at Great Southeast Flooring America are committed to the community that has supported our business over the years. Since 2017, the Flooring America Scholarship Program has helped deserving college-bound seniors at Brevard County schools. We expanded the program in 2020 to include 16 area high schools and $16,000 in scholarship funds. It’s both an investment in our community’s future and a way of saying “thank you.”
Since setting up the program, we’ve met many outstanding young people who have received these awards, which total $45,000 to date. We look forward to meeting and helping many more.
Starting each February, Students wishing to apply for a scholarship should pick up an application at the Guidance Counselor's office at their high school.
How it works
This year, Great Southeast Flooring America is awarding a $1,000 scholarship to one deserving student at each of these 16 Brevard County high schools:
Astronaut, Bayside, Cocoa, Cocoa Beach, Eau Gallie, Edgewood, Heritage, Merritt Island, Melbourne, Palm Bay, Rockledge, Satellite, Space Coast, Titusville, Viera and Westshore.
To be considered for a scholarship, students must be in their senior year and on track to graduate in 2021. They must be enrolled in one of the 16 high schools listed above, and planning to attend a four-year college or university for the 2021 fall semester.
Students interested in earning a Great Southeast Flooring America scholarship should also be able to demonstrate traits such as high character, integrity, academic achievement, sportsmanship, citizenship and leadership.
A 500-word essay on “how I would use the $1,000” is also required along with a teacher recommendation.
