The State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota has received donations for veteran scholarships. 

  • SCF Venice receives donations for veteran scholarships
  • Student veterans provided with $1,000 scholarships

The money will be used to provide SCF Venice student veterans with individual $1,000 scholarships. 

For the second year in a row, the Venice American Legion is donating its proceeds from its annual golf tournament to the school. The tournament raised $7,300. 

That amount combined with the previous donations from the legion will sustain the veterans' scholarships for more than six years. 

SCF Venice serves about 300 student veterans and their dependents.
