What We Do

Local Senior Scholarships

2024 Senior Scholarships

Paying for college can be a challenging time for all families. Flagler County strives to go above and beyond for our graduates. This year more than 50 local businesses and organizations came together to help ease the minds of our graduating seniors by awarding 175 scholarships totaling over $450,000. Scholarships were awarded to seniors going to college and trade schools. The close-knit Flagler Community continues to support the development of our youth with their generosity.

The 2020-2021 school year was still not quite back to normal, and we were not able to have an in-person ceremony due to COVID-19 restrictions. We couldn't let that keep us from celebrating our seniors. Over 150 Flagler Schools staff members and community members came together to fan out across Flagler County in 30 teams for the 2021 Senior Scholarship "Drive & Surprise" event to visit the recipients at their homes. It was an amazing effort that made every recipient feel like a sweepstakes winner.
