Broward League of Cities Awards Scholarships to Four Broward County High School Students

Four Broward County high school seniors were awarded $1,000 scholarships from the Broward League of Cities to support their aspirations in municipal government. 

The Broward League of Cities established its Scholarship for Government Studies program over 10 years ago to support Broward County students pursuing higher education. It has awarded approximately $50,000 to exemplary students in Broward who have showcased strong leadership, communication and judgment skills throughout their high school careers.
