Grant provides $40,000 for PHCC Foundation scholarships

Mr. Edward K. RobertsMr. Edward K. Roberts

The Pasco-Hernando Community College Foundation recently received a $40,000 grant from the Edward K. Roberts Fund of the Community Foundation of Sarasota County.

The contribution provided scholarships to PHCC students in summer 2013 and will continue to provide scholarships to fall term PHCC students. Per the donor’s wishes, preference will be given to part-time students who may not qualify for other financial aid.

Roberts was a generous lifelong donor to PHCC. He relocated to Sarasota, Fla., and upon his death in 2009, established the Edward K. Roberts Fund with the Community Foundation of Sarasota County. The PHCC Foundation was one of the organizations specified to be eligible for distributions from the Fund.

For more information about the PHCC Foundation, please call 727-816-3410 or visit the Foundation webpage.
