Elementary & Middle School Scholarships

The Polk State College Foundation works closely with individual donors to provide at least one  5th grade student at every public elementary school in Polk County and one 8th grade student at Crystal Lake Middle School with a scholarship to be used to complete a degree at Polk State College. Recipients are chosen by a select committee at each public elementary and middle school. Only the recipients chosen by the committee for the scholarship are eligible.

Change of address?
If your child has changed their address prior to their graduation from high school, please contact the Foundation via email with the student’s name, the name of the scholarship they received, the year the scholarship was received, and the student’s current address. Please email us with the recipient’s updated (or most current) address on or before January 31 of their senior year. Students that are graduating from high school early must contact the Foundation to receive their activation instructions.

The Polk State College Foundation will contact recipients during their senior year of high school with activation instructions for their scholarship. Activation instructions will be mailed to the address on file in the final months of student’s senior year.
