The Hallandale Community Council Scholarship Fund has recognized the achievements of hundreds of Hallandale Beach resident high school graduates with financial awards ranging from $100 to $5,000 each, totaling hundreds of thousands of dollars. In 2009 the Hallandale Community Council Scholarship Fund, Inc. became the Hallandale Scholarship Fund, Inc. and continues to provide scholarship awards to graduating high school seniors who are residents of Hallandale Beach. Students apply for scholarships through the aid of the Guidance Counselors at their own schools. In turn, the Counselors provide the Committee with additional information, cumulative average, extra curricular activities, results of achievement, aptitude and college entrance tests. The choice of school is left to the student but the Committee requires that his or her application be accepted and the student enrolled before any funds are disbursed.
