Nadia Rullo, Client Services Associate at Adam Financial Associates, attended the American Dream Summit Luncheon in Fort Lauderdale last Wednesday on behalf of clients who have included this worthy cause in their charitable giving plans.
The event is hosted by Broward College Foundation to honor donors who have contributed to the American Dream Scholarship fund, and students who can complete their college studies thanks to financial support from the American Dream scholarship fund.
At lunch, Nadia met some of the students who have benefitted from this life-changing scholarship and learned more about their studies and exciting plans for the future. To receive scholarship support, students must meet very high standards:
- Students Must Maintain a GPA of 2.5 or Higher
- Students Must Be Currently Employed
- Students Must Be Pursuing a Degree in a High Demand Field
- Students Must Live in the Tri-County Area
- Students Must Be Ineligible for Federal Grants
Another plus? All American Dream Scholarship contributions are matched, so each gift you make to the scholarship fund is maximized.
