Brevard Schools Foundation has awarded more than 973 scholarships to graduating seniors. This program allows community members to invest in talent from our local area, support student career goals, and help children succeed. 

In collaboration with our donors, I Love My Island, Inc. proudly participates in this program each year by offering two, 500 dollar scholarships to graduates of a Merritt Island high school. Our ideal candidates are students who have a clear vision for their future careers and have taken steps to start those careers. 

This scholarship is unique in that we are mainly focussed on the candidate’s entrepreneurial preparedness and expression of a passion to turn a dream into a real plan. Our scholarship committee members will not know any identifying information while reading essays or choosing a winning candidate.
