Assistance to Educational Institutions through Scholarships

Miami-Dade County Public Schools Scholarship

Staying true to its missions and values, as well as the importance of education, MBF tries to provide resources for students at all levels of post secondary education. MBF has partnered with the Miami-Dade County Public Schools in order to provide resources to City of Miami high school seniors who have demonstrated a dedication to their academic careers.

The MBF M-DCPS High School Scholarship provides resources for minority students who live in the City of Miami, demonstrate academic achievement and need, and will be attending a post-secondary institution in the fall.

MBF has awarded a total of two hundred seventeen (217) $1,000 scholarships. The scholarship application for the 2022-2023 academic year will open February 2023.

The MBF Scholarship has deepened my aspirations for the personal and career goals that I have set for myself. Being a first-generation college student, a post-secondary institution’s lecture room of 500+ students was not where I visualized myself, due to my family’s numerous hardships. The MBF has eased those burdens with the financial aid and overall support system provided. This scholarship has served as the torch allowing me to create a path that will not only benefit me, but ultimately enhance the lives of others around me as well.

Helping young ambitious students of Miami, I feel honored for the MBF scholarship in assisting in my college journey.  They were a true asset during the process. And because of their help, I was able to achieve more than I was expecting– having the privilege to experience amazing opportunities during my freshmen year!
