– West Palm Beach, FL - The Palm Beach County Property Appraiser’s Office annual College Scholarship Awards application process is open. Now in its 28th year, the Property Appraiser’s Office will be awarding six $1,500 scholarships along with an opportunity for each recipient to participate in a paid summer internship in our office. Since 1994, the office has awarded nearly $150,000 in college scholarships.
To be eligible for a scholarship award, a student must be graduating from a public, private or home school within Palm Beach County, have a minimum of 3.0 unweighted GPA, and plan to attend an accredited higher-education institution (college or junior college) in the fall of 2021.
The program is particularly special to the Property Appraiser’s Office because the money raised for the scholarships is 100% funded by employees who volunteer to donate to the fund in return for casual dress Fridays.
