Giving Purpose to Potential

Awards / Scholarships

Recognition That Lasts A Lifetime! Each year Florida Business Professionals of America aims to recognize students, advisors and supporters for their contribution to the Florida BPA.

The first way is through student scholarships. Scholarship Awards are made possible through our committed corporate partners, BPA Alumni and families across Florida who have seen first-hand the powerful difference BPA makes for students.

Our last area of recognition is our special recognition awards. Each year Florida BPA highlight stakeholders across various areas of Florida BPA that have gone beyond the mark and really stood out.
