Palm Beach County Property Appraiser's Office Announces 24th Annual Scholarship Awards Program

 
Scholarship Program

The Palm Beach County Property Appraiser’s Office (PAO) is pleased to announce the 24th Annual Scholarship Awards Program. This year, the PAO will increase its five college scholarship awards to $2,000 each to graduating (Palm Beach County) high school seniors, who will attend accredited higher education institutions.

We are now accepting applications, click here. The deadline to submit is March 31, 2018.

To be eligible for a scholarship award, a student must be a resident of Palm Beach County, have a minimum of 3.0 GPA, and plan to attend an accredited higher-education institution (college or junior college).

In addition to receiving a scholarship, we will be offering each recipient an opportunity for a paid summer internship in the Property Appraiser's Office.

Since 1994, the PAO has awarded $125,000 in college scholarships. The program is particularly special to the PAO because the money raised for the scholarships is 100% funded by our employees who participate in, “Friday Casual Dress Day”, a volunteer donation program.

Our Scholarship Awards Employee Committee typically reviews more than 100 applications - all from exceptional high school seniors throughout Palm Beach County. Most of the students have impressive portfolios, ranging from proficient test scores to high GPA’s to meaningful community service projects. It’s always a very challenging selection process for the committee, as they choose five winners. The scholarships are awarded in May of each year.
