All proceeds benefit graduating St Johns County High School Seniors! 180 Scholarships given out to date!
About the Scholarship Program
For the past 18 years the St. Augustine & St. Johns County Board of REALTORS® and the St. Augustine & St. Johns County Multiple Listing Service have awarded over $180,000 in scholarships to 180 St. Johns County high school and home school graduating seniors.
At the start of each school year, members of the Education Committee reach out to St. Johns County High Schools, publicizing the $1,000-per-student scholarship program. To qualify, students must submit an application, transcript, essay and three letters of recommendations. The St. Augustine & St. Johns County Board of REALTORS® awards the annual scholarships based on the education committee members conducting a blind selection process of all applicants.
The scholarship money can be used for any college or trade school-related expense, including books and living expenses. Funds for the program are raised through annual association events, including a live/silent “Have a Heart Auction”, donations from REALTORS® and Business Partner members, proceeds from the annual golf tournament and the proceeds from the annual 5K Walk/Run. The association also provides a check-box on its annual dues invoice that allows members to donate to the scholarship program when they renew their membership. The Board of Realtors® feel very passionate about education in general and the education of our high school seniors in particular. These scholarships help them do good things for themselves and for the community. It’s just a great program.”
