"I cannot wait to begin my path to becomng an athletic trainer at Florida Gulf Coast University. You have lightended by financial burden which will allow me to focus on the most important aspect of school-learning. I promise I will work my hardest and eventually give something back to others, both as an athletic trainer and possibly a scholarship to future students like myself."
Savannah Kelly - 2015 BSF Scholarship
"Being named the 2015 recipient of the Sharon L. Morse Scholarship, from the Buffalo Scholarship Foundation, is truly the highest honor I have ever received. Sharon Morse was an amazing woman and loved by so many people. She valued education, loved music and strived to share both with everyone. With this scholarship money, I will be able to pursue my own education at the University of North Florida, where I plan to become a teacher, study music and someday return to The Villages Charter School, to share these passions with more children. Many thanks to the Morse family for honoring their mother/grandmother with this scholarship, The Villages Charter School for preparing me for college and the Buffalo Scholarship Foundation for their immense generosity."

"As a college student, paying for books, fees, housing, meal plans, transportation, and tuition can take attention away from doing your best. The money I received through the generosity of the Buffalo Scholarship Foundation has gone a long way in reducing stress for me and my family. As a result, I have been able to concentrate on academic success. I am grateful for the people in this organization that have been instrumental in helping me further my education."
David Rowan, 2007 BSF Scholarship

"It’s hard to express how it felt to be the 2007 winner of the Buffalo Scholarship Foundations' Sharon L. Morse Scholarship. It was an honor to be recognized in such a special way. After graduation, I moved to Gainesville to attend the University of Florida majoring in philosophy and physics, and I decided to use the scholarship to help defray my housing costs here. Best wishes to the Buffalo Scholarship Foundation."
