The Broward League of Cities is providing an opportunity for Broward County high school seniors to pursue higher education through its Scholarship for Government Studies program.
The program is now accepting applications for four $1,000 scholarships to be awarded to eligible graduating seniors pursuing studies in public administration, political science, or a government-related field.
The scholarship program is an initiative of the Broward League of Cities, a non-partisan, non-profit organization established in 1957. Its goal is to raise awareness and resolve issues affecting Broward County’s 31 cities and municipalities.
To be eligible for the scholarship, the applicants must be a 2023 graduating senior in a Broward County high school and a permanent resident of Broward County.
They must also pursue a major in public administration, political science, or a government-related field at any accredited college, university, or trade school in the United States. The minimum cumulative unweighted grade point average of the applicants must be 2.5 (on a 4.0 scale), verified by a school transcript.
The Broward League of Cities has supported Broward County students in pursuing higher education for more than ten years through its Scholarship for Government Studies program. The program has awarded more than $50,000 to exemplary students in cities across Broward County who have showcased strong leadership, communication, and judgment skills throughout their high school careers.
Parkland Commissioner Bob Mayersohn, and President of the Broward League of Cities, expressed his admiration for the caliber of students the program has rewarded and emphasized the importance of supporting future leaders through such initiatives with the help of generous sponsors.
Several companies and organizations donated to this year’s scholarship fund, including the Florida League of Cities, Big Dog Construction, Motorola Solutions, and the City of North Lauderdale, among others.
The deadline for scholarship applications is Friday, March 17, 2023. To learn more about the Broward League of Cities Scholarship for Government Studies and apply, visit BLOCScholarship.
