Space City Charities gave away its first scholarship in 2011, and since then has given away over $64,000 to students eager to further their education. We seek to provide financial assistance to students, encourage academic excellence, and to recognize achievements both in and out of school. Each year the charities staff works hard to fundraise and increase awareness of both scholarship availability and charity activities. It is only through these activities that we are able to continue to give back to students seeking to further their education. Each year we give away several types of scholarships. The description of the scholarships can be found below. All of the Space City Charities scholarships aim to empower students who are doing positive things in their school, with community efforts, and with their current (or future) careers.
