About The Scholarship

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.
