Take Stock in Children (TSIC) is a statewide scholarship mentoring program for low-income students. FUTURES’ TSIC scholars are selected in the eighth grade through an application and selection committee review process. TSIC scholars are paired with a mentor who meets with them for 30 minutes each week at school beginning in ninth grade. FUTURES’ TSIC scholars must maintain a weighted cumulative GPA of 3.0 and maintain good citizenship (no drug, alcohol, crime or gang activity). Upon achieving these goals and graduating high school, FUTURES Foundation awards these scholars with a Florida Prepaid tuition scholarship through the STARS Program.
The Take Stock in Children Strides for Education 5K is one of the funding sources for these scholarships. We hope you will support TSIC by participating in the event. All scholarship contributions currently are matched 100% with dollars from the Florida Prepaid Scholarship Program’s STARS Program which enhances each dollar donated locally.
