Scholarship Overview


The J.M. Rubin Foundation, Inc. is a Florida not-for-profit charitable corporation established in 1973. It has been approved by the Internal Revenue Service to make individual scholarship grants to recipients who must be bona fide residents of Palm Beach County, Florida.

In addition, all applicants must be U.S. citizens. The scholarship recipients need not attend any particular school, so long as the recipient is a candidate for certification or a degree. The recipients will be selected on the basis of academic and/or athletic achievement or promise as the basic criterion. Financial need is an additional factor, however, it is not required. The recipients will be selected from applicants on an objective and nondiscriminatory basis, including personal interviews if deemed necessary.

Each scholarship will be paid directly to the educational institution for the use of the recipient. Each educational institution must agree in writing to use the grant funds to defray the recipient's expenses or pay the funds to the recipient only if he or she is enrolled at such institution and his or her standing is consistent with the purpose and condition of the grant.
