The Broward County League of Cities Offers College Scholarships to Students Interested in Government

BROWARD COUNTY, Fla. — With the February 16 application deadline approaching, The Broward League of Cities reminds Broward County high school seniors who plan to attend a Florida college or university and pursue a major in public administration, political science or other government-related field, that four individual $1,000 scholarships will be available to qualified seniors who are residents of Broward County and attending any Broward County Public School or Charter School. The scholarships are made possible thanks to the generous personal contributions of elected officials and several League of Cities Associate Members.

Scholarship applications are posted on the Broward League of Cities website under Scholarship, and on the Broward County Public Schools website under Scholarship Bulletin. Each County high school also should have this scholarship opportunity posted on its website.

“This year, I have the honor of working alongside other League members to reinstitute the Scholarship Program created to provide financial assistance to high school seniors who are interested in a career related to municipal government,” said Cooper City Mayor Debbie Eisinger. “We look forward to presenting the scholarships to recipients at the League’s General Membership meeting on April 16.”

Serving Broward’s Cities
Originally chartered in 1957, The Broward League of Cities is a non-partisan, non-profit membership organization, welcoming representation from all of Broward’s 31 municipalities. Members work together to promote awareness of municipal services, concerns and accomplishments. In addition to municipal government membership, the League’s membership includes over 80 associate government, non-profit and local business organizations. Associate members are listed in the League’s annual directory and posted on its website: They are invited to attend League meetings, workshops and events, and participate on League Policy Committees.

Supporting the educational endeavors of students who plan to seek a career in municipal government is aligned with the League’s belief that by working together on common goals, municipalities can be more successful in resolving the issues affecting the welfare of Broward County residents at the local, state and federal levels, particularly in challenging times.
