History of The George Snow Scholarship Fund: Celebrating 37 Years

The Fund was established in 1982 as a memorial to George Snow, a Boca Raton developer who lost his life in a helicopter accident in 1980. Mr. Snow moved to Boca Raton in 1958 to take a position as a high school math teacher at what is now Atlantic High School in Delray Beach. Later Mr. Snow moved his career into the fields of real estate and construction, but he always remembered the importance of education and during his lifetime was active in trying to help those individuals who were trying to help themselves. These same ideals are those that shape the mission of the George Snow Scholarship Fund.

Since its inception the Fund has awarded over 12 million dollars in educational grants. In the year 2019 alone, the Scholarship Fund awarded over $1,400,000 in scholarships and scholars support services to 150 Snow Scholars. This level of support places the Fund as one of Palm Beach County’s largest sources of educational grants.

Known as experts in scholarship administration, the George Snow Scholarship Fund has developed a reputation for creating innovative programs which address the educational needs of those in our community.
