The 2016 Scholarship Application is now available!

Are you an FSPA member with children in college? Did you know that each year an average of $23,000 is distributed to dependents of pool industry professionals through The Florida Swimming Pool Association Scholarship Program?! This program helps members meet the high cost of college expenses for their children. The award is presented by the Swimming Pool Education & Safety Foundation.

Students at all levels of post-secondary education are eligible for merit scholarships based on academic accomplishment, extracurricular activities, contributions to their community and a research paper on a pool industry related topic. This program is only available to dependents of owners and employees of member companies.

The 2016-2017 Scholarship application and materials are due in the FSPA office by end of business on Thursday, June 30, 2016.
