Pathways to Success - In celebration of our military veterans for their service to our nation, the State College of Florida and the Foundation are committed to supporting our veterans’ transition back to non-military life by helping them earn a college degree. The Foundation is raising funds to help provide these veterans with scholarships and emergency assistance in the form of loans to bridge the gap in VA benefit payment.
