The contribution will provide scholarships to PHSC students in the summer and fall semesters of 2016. Preference will be given to part-time students who may not qualify for other financial aid. The Edward K. Roberts Fund donation of $40,000 in 2015 provided scholarships for 80 PHSC students.
Roberts was a generous lifelong donor to PHSC. He relocated to Sarasota, Fla., and upon his death in 2009, established the Edward K. Roberts Fund with the Community Foundation of Sarasota County. Since 2011, the Fund has donated $260,000 from the Edward K. Roberts Community College Fund providing scholarships to more than 450 PHSC students. PHSC was one of several colleges specified to be eligible for distributions from the Fund.
