Broward Education Foundation Honors
Scholarship Recipients and Sponsors
Fort Lauderdale, FL – The Broward Education Foundation recognized students from 33 schools who received funding through the Broward Advisors for Continuing Education (BRACE) Scholarship Fund.
“BRACE Scholarships provide opportunities for deserving students who have exhausted other avenues of support and might not be able to pursue secondary education without the Foundation’s assistance,” said Raymond Monteleone, Broward Education Foundation Board Chair. “The sponsors who make these scholarships possible are true heroes of our community.”
The Foundation raised over $575,000 and of that, $210,000 was matched by Florida Prepaid resulting in a total of $785,000 scholarship dollars. This year, 184 students received BRACE Scholarships. Students will attend colleges and universities, technical and vocational schools. 
The BRACE Scholarship Fund was established in 1985. Throughout the year, BRACE Advisors encourage students to apply for scholarships. BRACE Advisors review and select the awardees, based on un-met financial need, as a service to the Foundation. Since the creation of the BRACE Scholarship Fund, the Broward Education Foundation has provided over 3,510 scholarships to graduating high school seniors, totaling over $7.2 million.
