Give to the Alumni Legacy Quasi-Endowed Scholarship

Alumni Leadership Team

Since 1966, Seminole State College of Florida has awarded more than 130,000 degrees and certificates. That's a lot of alumni for a College that started with just a few portable classrooms huddled in a former citrus grove.

Seminole State is now one of the nation's top colleges, offering bachelor's degrees; an Associate in Arts degree; and more than 100 Associate in Science and certificate programs.

We want alumni of all our programs to feel that they're still connected to each other and to the College. The Alumni Leadership Team established the Alumni Legacy Quasi-Endowed Scholarship with the hope that families of Seminole State College alumni would be encouraged to continue their family's legacy.

Established by the Seminole State Alumni Association, this scholarship provides tuition and book assistance to students who are in the immediate family of Seminole State alumni. Students must possess a minimum 2.5 GPA, demonstrate a commitment to community service and demonstrate financial need.

Success Stories

Alec Rhodes is pursuing a bachelor's degree in construction management at Seminole State while working as a full-time project engineer intern at Wharton-Smith Inc. Rhodes is the first in his family to complete this level of education. His younger brother is also enrolled in the construction program at Seminole State, and Alec wants to be a great example to him and to his youngest brother, who is currently in high school.
