Climate change and the COVID-19 pandemic have presented difficult challenges for humanity, revealing the pressing need for more scientists to help solve the problems of the 21st century. Founded in 2019, DeBary Scholarship Foundation, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit community organization established to fund post-secondary education by awarding academic science scholarships to gifted DeBary, Florida students by way of fundraising, contributions, and grants. Our goal is to help students pursue their goals of a higher education in science.
In 2019, we set out to award one $1000 scholarship within one year. Within nine months, we were able to award two science scholarships to two very bright and deserving DeBary students. We awarded a $1500 scholarship to Ethan Crane who is majoring in Astrophysics at the University of Chicago. We also awarded a second scholarship for $750 to Anjali Collins who is majoring in Biology at the University of Florida. We exceeded our goal by 125%.
We Need Your Help
The COVID-19 crisis has made it difficult to pursue in-person fundraising events, so we are asking for your help funding our 2021 DeBary Science Scholarships. Even if you don't live in our small city, you can help gifted students pursue a science education, better preparing all of us for an uncertain future.
Thank you very much for your support!
