Scholarship applications for high school seniors

Education fosters confidence, inspiration and motivation. Miami-Dade County’s Office of Neighborhood Safety is awarding 75 scholarships, in the amount of $2,500 each, to be paid directly to colleges or universities on behalf of the scholarship recipients.
