Although the Scheidel Foundation does not provide direct financial or administrative support for these scholarships, it has recently funded a scholarship advisor at FSCJ to actively monitor student achievements, and provide additional support and guidance to increase retention rates. “Having a case worker on campus to work with our scholars has proven to improve the rates of admissions and retention,” said Shielah Overholser, managing director of the Scheidel Foundation. “I believe this resource has revived enthusiasm for the program among the Jacksonville community’s agencies.”

“Receiving this scholarship allowed me to focus on making good grades and studying rather than having to worry about the stresses of life. To the Scheidel family, I say thank you very much.”

“Every day I wake up happy to know that I can go to school and everything is taken care of. I’m very happy the Scheidel family was so generous to give me, and other people, the opportunity to go to college.”

“Without the Scheidel scholarship I wouldn’t be able to fulfill my dream. I want to be able to further my education. It means everything.”
