About Our Board
Schools and Education Advisory Board was created by the Town Council of the Town of Southwest Ranches on January 4, 2007 for the purpose of advising and updating the Town Council on any school or educational issues.
The Schools and Education Advisory Board is dedicated to helping young qualified residents improve their lives by assisting them with continuous education, by being advocates for young people who wish to continue their education beyond high school and to develop pride in their community through community service. As a means towards that goal, the Schools and Education Advisory Board has established a scholarship fund to assist students who reside in the Town. The primary source of funding for the annual scholarship is monies from sponsors and fundraising events. All of the proceeds from fundraisers organized by the Schools and Education Advisory Board benefit the Town of Southwest Ranches Scholarship Fund. Scholarships are awarded to eligible applicants once per year.
The 2018 Town of SWR College Scholarship Application Packet is now available. You may download it Here or you can pass by Town Hall’s front desk for a copy.
