Since 1997 more than 1,139 Take Stock in Children Scholarships have been awarded to students through the IRSC Take Stock in Children program, with the provision that they meet the positive challenges of the program and graduate from high school.

Designed to motivate and assist students who show academic promise and who might not otherwise have the opportunity to attend college, the program matches scholarship recipients with adult volunteer mentors from the community who provide guidance and encouragement. All selected scholarship recipients sign a contract, agree to maintain good grades, stay out of trouble, stay away from drugs and alcohol, and graduate from high school. Those meeting that challenge receive a Florida Prepaid four-year state college tuition plan scholarship allowing them to attend IRSC to achieve their associate degree, followed by two years at IRSC or another State of Florida public college to earn their Bachelor’s degree.

The Take Stock in Children Scholarship program is made possible through many program partners including the Florida Prepaid College Foundation, the Governor’s Mentoring Initiative, the Indian River State College Foundation, the Indian River County School District, the Martin County School District, the Okeechobee County School District, the St. Lucie County School District, and Take Stock in Children, Inc.
