It’s time for our Launch Scholarship for 2023!  Looking for future entrepreneurs!!

Once again, it’s almost spring and it is time for Merritt Island Seniors to complete an application for our Launch Scholarship.  What are we looking for ?  This scholarship was created to assist seniors, especially those interested in non-traditional post high school education.  What do we mean by that?  Are you interested in a career as an independent business owner in areas such as  auto mechanic, HVAC,  cosmetology, barbering, culinary arts – all those careers that make the world go round!  We want to help you achieve those career goals.

Have you started your career path through volunteer work or an internship?  Have you worked on a project that involves your future career – re-building a car engine, working in a restaurant, building robots for a school team?  Are you determined to be an entrepreneur?

You don’t have to be a straight A student.  We are looking for spirited and hard working individuals who have a passion to achieve their dream career.  Tell us yourself, your dream career and what you have already accomplished toward reaching your goals.

Complete your application and return with required essay, recommendations and school record by April 21, 2023. Applications may be downloaded from the website or you can pick one up at our store: My Island Thrift, 234 East Merritt Island Parkway.  If you have any questions please contact me at 321-501-3999 or

Good Luck!  We look forward to hearing from you!
