Veterans sought for $2,000 scholarships

Seminole State College of Florida is partnering with W.W. Grainger to offer two $2,000 scholarships for qualified veterans.

The scholarships, part of the Grainger Tools for Tomorrow program, are available for honorably discharged veterans who are currently enrolled in a qualified technical education program at Seminole State. Qualified programs include Associate in Science or certification in: electronic systems, heating/air conditioning, plumbing, pneumatics, welding, automotive, construction, facilities maintenance or other industrial trade.

Applicants must be currently enrolled in at least 12 hours of classes this semester and have a 3.0 GPA or higher. Applicants who were not previously enrolled will be required to provide a military record.

All applicants must provide the following:

  • One letter of recommendation from an instructor, advisor or military first line supervisor.
  • A list of clubs, activities, accomplishments, leadership roles held and years involved, including those related to their field of study or military job experience.
  • An essay of 200–300 words on why the students chose to study technical education, how their achievements and/or leadership roles have helped them grow individually and their future goals within the technical field.

The winning students will also receive toolkits upon graduation.

Seminole State has about 600 registered student veterans.

For more information on the scholarships or to receive an application, please e-mail Jose Toro, Seminole State Veterans Affairs specialist, or call 407.708.2242. The deadline to apply is Wednesday, Dec. 1.

The program works with AACC member colleges across the United States to award students who have demonstrated drive, commitment and leadership.
