4.09.19 – West Palm Beach, FL - The Palm Beach County Property Appraiser's Office 26th annual college scholarship application process is now closed. The Employee Scholarship Committee is currently reviewing all applications that have been submitted to our office. (The deadline to submit an application was March 31, 2019.) The awarding process is very competitive.
This year, we are offering six $1,500 college scholarship awards to Palm Beach County high school seniors, who will attend accredited higher education institutions. In addition to the scholarship award, each award recipient will be offered an opportunity to participate in a paid summer internship in our office.
The program is particularly special to our office because the money raised for the scholarship awards is 100% funded by the employees who participate in, "Friday Dress Casual Day", a volunteer donation program. Since 1994, the PAO has awarded more than $130,000 in college scholarships.
During the next several weeks, the Employee Scholarship Committee members will complete the review and selection process. Recipients will be notified and the awards ceremony will be scheduled shortly thereafter. Stay tuned.
