Our program also supports 80 recipients from previous years. We also sponsor a scholarship at the Cape Coral Technical College. We also support a nontraditional scholarships at Florida Gulf Coast University. This is for students who started college right out of high school but had to stop and later wanted to return to finish their education. Currently we are sponsoring 8 students at FGCU. We also support one of the Cape Coral Mayors scholarship. Funding for these scholarships come from our 2 Thrift Stores and endowments.
We are so proud of the accomplishments these students have achieved and are honored to be able to help them pursue the education further.
