DONATE TO THE TANYA ENGLISH SCHOLARSHIP FUND
Wakulla Academic Boosters has established a Tanya English Scholarship at the request of her husband.
Donations will endow a local scholarship in memory of Tanya English,
continuing her impact on our community and our students.
The Focus of Our Efforts
Wakulla Academic Boosters stewards 42 different scholarships ranging from $600-$15,000. Initial endowments were made by local individuals and businesses who wanted to encourage students to continue their education and give back to their local community. The majority of these scholarships are restricted to Tallahassee Community College due to our funding covenants, however a limited number are available for other colleges. The Wakulla Academic Boosters Team works year round to increase scholarship offerings and funding.
Browse our selection of Memorial Scholarship offerings, learn about the requirements, and get a glimpse at the history of the scholarship and its namesake.
With the support of local community groups and businesses, our scholarship offerings go beyond to offer more each year.
HEAD START SCHOLARSHIPS
Head Start scholarships are specifically for good students who may not be thinking that higher education is possible for them.
>>> Students graduating from high school in Wakulla County, are invited to apply during their Senior year of high school. The WAB begins to review applications in the Spring, and will notify the scholarship recipients by the end of the school year. <<<

ABOUT THE BOOSTERS
Wakulla Academic Boosters was founded by Walter C. Dodson Jr. and Judge Mike Carter in February of 1979 to promote academic excellence, recognize good scholarship and reward deserving students with scholarship assistance.
Today the Academic Boosters acts like a typical boosters organization for a sport-- except all Wakulla County students are on our team! We serve as stewards for the scholarships that have been endowed, and sponsor events that promote academic excellence.
SERVING STUDENTS IS WHAT WE DO!
