Are you applying to colleges?
Wondering how you are going to pay for your college education?
The Louise Eatroff Memorial College Scholarship Endowment Fund may be able to help.
The fund is designed to award college scholarships to eligible Jewish students residing in Hillsborough County who are attending or will attend an accredited public, in-state Florida college or university and are pursuing a 4-year full-time bachelor’s degree.
The Louise Eatroff Memorial College Scholarship Fund supports education through college scholarships for eligible students.
The fund is currently supporting three students and will not be able to fund another student until the Fall of 2020.
Applications will be available in November 2019.
The scholarships provide funding for Tuition and Fees and Room and Board. The goal is to fund the entire annual cost of tuition, fees, room and board (after application of any available Bright Futures Scholarship) for each student chosen for up to four consecutive years of undergraduate study.
The Louise G. Eatroff Memorial College Scholarship Fund has been endowed by Nancy Geltman Resnick and Dr. Richard Eatroff as a means of both honoring Louise’s memory and assuring that the significance of her life will be remembered not just today or tomorrow, but well into the future. Her devotion to the Tampa Jewish Community Center, having served as its president for two terms, is well known. She was involved in many of its programs and worked tirelessly on its behalf lived by the Jewish values of Tzedekah and Tikkun Olam, and she believed wholeheartedly that a college education opens the door to countless opportunities for fulfillment and success in life.
