The Yolanda Thomas Scholarship Endowment has been established through the Northwest Florida State College Foundation to assist an Okaloosa or Walton County student attending Northwest Florida State College on a full-time basis. The combined merit and need-based scholarship will be used to provide an annual tuition, books and fees award. The recipient must show a high degree of motivation in pursuit of his/her education and participate in community service as a volunteer. First preference will be given to an economically-disadvantaged female. A one-page, 300-word essay on the future goals of the applicant is also required.
Selection of the recipients will rest with the recommendation of the NWFSC Foundation Scholarship Committee.
