Broward Sheriff’s Advisory Council Creates $100,000 Annual Scholarship at Broward College
The Broward Sheriff’s Advisory Council (BSAC), whose mission is to support the families of those who keep our community safe, is proud to announce the Broward Sheriff’s Advisory Council Annual Scholarship at Broward College. This scholarship will assist the children of Broward County Sheriff’s Office full-time sworn personnel in the Department of Law Enforcement, the Department of Detention, and the Department of Fire Rescue and Emergency Services.
Access to higher education is the pathway to a positive future. As the cost of higher education skyrockets, families are struggling to provide their children with a post-secondary education. National studies repeatedly indicate the importance of education after high school for an individual to be viable in the employment market.
“We chose to work with Broward College to maximize the impact of the scholarship. BSAC’s money can go a long way there,” said Nancy Vaniman, executive director of BSAC. “Our hope is that this scholarship will support the children of our local law enforcement officers who provide so much of themselves to our community.”
Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel said, “The Broward Sheriff’s Advisory Council is second to none when it comes to providing support for our officers.” Sheriff Israel continued, “I am personally grateful for the leadership, hard work and generosity that BSAC brings to our community. My appreciation for their efforts is beyond words.”
Broward College students who are the children of Broward County Sheriff’s Office full-time sworn personnel in the Department of Law Enforcement, the Department of Detention, and the Department of Fire Rescue and Emergency Services are eligible. This scholarship may be used for any of the college’s degree programs, as well as all certificate programs offered by the Broward College Institute of Public Safety.
The Broward Sheriff’s Advisory Council, Inc. is a nonprofit 501(C)(3) Corporation formed in 1985 by founder Nick Navarro, the past Broward County sheriff. The organization is supported by donations from the community and its members.
