Scholarship America is the nation’s largest scholarship and educational support organization, and its DFS program is the nation’s largest grass roots, community-based scholarship program – raising funds and providing financial and academic support to students in the community in which the funds are raised.

Lake Worth DFS is also proud to be the sponsoring agency for the Barry Grunow Scholarship Fund – www.BarryGrunowScholarship.org.
