Palm Beach Rotary Foundation
Flags for Heroes Scholarship Fund
The Flags for Heroes scholarship program funding is dependent upon the net proceeds from an annual Flags for Heroes event in Palm Beach. Scholarships are awarded for undergraduate study at accredited colleges and universities and/or trade schools on the basis of a comprehensive process. Areas under review include academic accomplishments, community service, and personal achievements. This scholarship is for an initial one year and may be extended for up to three additional years depending on continued academic success, qualification of employment of the recipient’s parent with the Town of Palm Beach, and availability of funds. Vocational school tuition requirements will also be taken into account. Awarded scholarships are paid directly to the school. An applicant must be a legal dependent child of an active Town General employee as defined in the application who is actively employed in a General employee position at the time of award; and have at least one year of full-time service at the time of application. All matters pertaining to scholarship eligibility and the scholarship application submittal deadline are provided in the scholarship application. Eligible students are encouraged to apply.
