Empowering one student at a time!

The Scholarship Plug's mission is to empower students and families with the information needed to successfully plan “early” to fund their dreams.  By partnering with colleges, scholarship programs, nonprofit, private organizations, church groups, and after school programs, The Scholarship Plug is determined to help bring Broward County’s FAFSA completion rate up. Many of The Scholarship Plug's strengths are exhibited while assisting students and families on their quest towards obtaining the best financial aid packages and scholarship opportunities.
