It is with heavy hearts that we must announce that we will no longer be accepting scholarship applications for the 2019 - 2020 school year. Unfortunately, because of the COVID-19 situation causing mass event cancelations, we lost most of our major fundraising opportunities and we will be unable to award any new scholarships this year. We WILL, however, be awarding scholarships to our previous winners to continue their educations.
It is our stance and intention that we WILL be taking on a class next year, barring an extra long down time due to the COVID-19 virus.
We apologize and it breaks our hearts that we are unable to help anyone new this year.
The Privateers' scholarship program began in 1992 with 1 student receiving $500.00, as of July 2016 a total of 125 Manatee County students have received $275,500.00 in scholarship monies.
The scholarships are used in assisting deserving students financially as they continue their education. Selections are made based on an essay about themselves and 3 criteria of: financial need, community service and grades. Scholarships are renewed to recipients that reapply, are full time students and have maintained a 3.0 GPA. In rare exceptions the Privateers' may consider a recipient that does not meet the renewal requirements. The Privateers' are proud of our scholarship recipients that have worked hard and have earned their college degree and the recipients that are still in school. The scholarship application is available to be printed out below on this
