How the Fischer-Carr Scholarship Fund works
Funds are raised by the Fischer-Carr Scholarship Committee to provide Take Stock in Children Scholarships for students in grades 6 through 11 who come from low income families.
These scholarships are for free tuition to post-high school institutes of higher learning.
The scholarship is conditional. Students must maintain grades in all subjects of C or better; must have good attendance; must remain crime and drug free and must graduate from high school.
All students get mentors.
As of December 2018, we have provided 327 students with scholarships for free college tuition.
Scholarships are pre-paid through the State of Florida.
Current amount needed to provide a scholarship through our Fund is $4,000.
