The deadline to submit completed scholarship application packets for Uncommon Friends Foundation's scholarships is April 1. Scholarships will be awarded to deserving students, veterans, struggling adults, and single parents who are pursuing degrees in education, law, technology, and other studies.
Qualifications require that nominees reside in Lee, Charlotte, Collier, Glades, or Hendry Counties, need financial assistance, excel in school and/or their personal lives, and possess high quality character traits. Scholarships vary in application requirements, duration and financial amounts, while some are for specific schools such as Florida Gulf Coast University, Technical College, and PACE Center for Girls of Lee County.

Application packets include an application form, a written essay on character, a digital color photograph, and one or more letters from a sponsor such as a service agency, counselor, teacher, or principal. Completed application packets (and any questions) should be submitted to Scholarships@UncommonFriends.org. Winners will be announced in May.
