Pinellas Education Foundation receives $25,000
Students in grades 6 through 10 may be nominated for a TSIC/Doorways Scholarship through the Pinellas Education Foundation website at www.pinellaseducation.org. If awarded, they receive the opportunity for up to a four year college tuition scholarship or technical school training by fulfilling a contractual obligation to attend school regularly, maintain at least a “C” in all classes, study for tests, complete homework assignments and remain crime and drug free.
The TSIC/Doorways Scholarship Program awarded a total of $620,000 in scholarships to 50 students from 13 different schools last month at the University of South Florida St. Petersburg. In February, the program welcomed an additional 68 students from 30 traditional middle and high schools awarding $952,000 in scholarships.
Currently, there are 1,450 TSIC/Doorways graduates attending many Florida colleges and universities.
