Investing in Tomorrow’s Leaders

Helping someone achieve their potential is an experience you will treasure for your lifetime. We currently administer 10 scholarships and award funds through the generosity of individual donors and organizations who wanted to create a lasting impact. These funds provide deserving students with support toward achieving their educational and professional goals. These gifts provide financial assistance for Brevard County residents attending accredited colleges and universities. Some of our funds also support students attending technical schools, educational workshops, and a private Catholic high school.


Each scholarship and award has a unique set of eligibility criteria, application processes, and deadlines, which you can search below.

  • Nancy Baur Dillen Art Teacher Scholarship

    Nancy Baur Dillen, artist and retired Eastern Florida State College Art Professor, long dreamed of broadening opportunities for art educators to share, develop and grow – both as artists and as teachers, to better influence and inspire the skills, creativity, and techniques of budding young artists. She and her husband, Rick, brought the dream to life by establishing the Nancy Baur Dillen Art Teacher Scholarship in 2015.

    Annually, up to five art educators employed by Brevard County Public Schools are selected to receive scholarships for week-long workshops at Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts, a national art education center in Gatlinburg, TN.

  • Skate to School Scholarship Fund

    The Skate to School Scholarship Fund was envisioned and created by Robert “Scooter” Newell to reward top skaters of local skate board competitions with college education scholarships. Skaters placing high enough in contests may earn a scholarship opportunity, which can be claimed and awarded upon graduation of high school or home school equivalent with a 2.5 GPA or higher. Students may accumulate multiple scholarship award opportunities from placing in multiple contests. Learn more.
  • Melbourne Central Catholic (MCC) Scholarships

    The Community Foundation for Brevard administers the MCC Scholarship Fund and the James W. & Mary Alice Libby Scholarship Fund which benefit Brevard County students seeking an education at Melbourne Central Catholic High School.
