  • All of the scholarships listed below are named to honor a key figure in The Villages Charter School or to honor family and loved ones. All utilize the Buffalo Scholarship Foundation common application. The Buffalo Scholarship Foundation shall determine eligibility of a graduating Villages High School senior student and award a scholarship. The award and amount of all scholarships will be determined by the Foundation, in its sole discretion. To qualify, the student must attend a post-secondary institution approved by the Foundation and be a full-time student for two consecutive semesters within the first two years following his or her graduation. Failure to use the funds within the first two years following graduation or failure to comply with any other requirement shall result in forfeiture of the remaining funds to the Foundation. All scholarship money will be deposited directly with the "qualified institution".
