Any high school senior student who attends a Pinellas County High School, public or private. Students attending St. Petersburg College are not eligible for this scholarship. Please apply for the CFY SPC Scholarship Program which is only for students who are intending to enroll at St. Petersburg College. Some exceptions may be made as determined by the CFY Scholarship Committee.
To avoid forfeited scholarship funds, a written (email) submission showing withdrawal and indicating the new school must be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. The student is responsible for requesting a refund from the current school, payable to CFY. Once the unused portion of the scholarship is received, we will redistribute the funds along with any additional remaining funds (if applicable) following the timeline described above/on the updated Scholarship Disbursement Form (July distribution toward fall semester).
Please allow anywhere from 2-6 weeks from the check date for processing. Checks are issued using the information provided exactly as it is on the Scholarship Disbursement Form, so it is the responsibility of the recipient to ensure correct school and personnel detail. If the school still states that the funds have not been received beyond a reasonable time frame, please email email@example.com with your name, the name of the school, and your student ID. We will respond via email with your check number
and date to be provided to the financial aid office for research.
