SRRC Scholarship

On behalf of the Southeastern Regional Relocation Council (SRRC), we are excited to announce our 2019 SRRC Scholarship for current high school seniors in the State of Florida. Residence eligibility is defined as a senior attending a private or public school in the State of Florida.

The Southeastern Regional Relocation Council is a non-profit organization that brings together business corporations and relocation service providers from across the Southeastern U.S. for the primary purpose of providing educational information and current relocation industry updates to its members. As a part of our community outreach efforts, SRRC sponsors an annual scholarship to assist an eligible high school senior in helping provide a scholarship to assist with college costs.

The SRRC scholarship program focuses on current high school seniors who have relocated into Florida sometime between grades 9 (after completion of the 8th grade) and 12. We would like to encourage your students to apply. The one-time award of $1,000 will be presented in 2019. The award will be sent directly to the college of choice that the student will be attending to assist with tuition, etc.

SRRC will select the scholarship winner based on the strength of their total application package. The student will be evaluated on:

  • academic performance (as illustrated in their transcripts)
  • extra-curricular activities (to be listed with their application), and
  • their essay addressing the way they handled the challenges associated with relocating to a new area and a new high school.

As the high school counselor/administrator, we ask for your assistance with the following items:

1)  Please make eligible students aware of this scholarship opportunity and encourage their participation. School counselors are encouraged to post the scholarship application on your school website and in any newsletter to seniors as soon as you receive this information, as the deadline for submissions is Friday, February 8, 2019 (no exceptions, please).

2)  Please confirm the applicant's eligibility based on the criteria that they have:

  1. Relocated more than 50 miles and changed schools due to their family's relocation between the 9th and 12th grades, and
  2. Have a current minimum grade point average of 3.0 on a scale of 4.0 (or equivalent achievement on a different scale) 

3)  Assist with submissions by signing the application and providing academic performance information including grades and major test scores (SAT) to accompany the student's application.

There are two documents that we are providing you and we ask you to provide these to interested and qualified seniors:

Making these two documents available on the school website is recommended. Please make hard copies to distribute as needed. We must receive the completed application (to include the signed application, academic scores from your office, and the student's essay along with extracurricular activities) no later than 5:00 pm on Friday, February 8, 2019 (no exceptions, please. Incomplete applications will not be eligible). The scholarship will be awarded in Spring 2019. We will be contacting the selected scholarship recipient to announce their award and provide additional details.
