The Margaret M. Brown Scholarship Fund of the Florida Swimming Pool Association is available to dependents of owners and employees of member companies. This program helps members meet the high cost of college expenses for their children. The award is presented by the Florida Swims Foundation.
Students at all levels of post-secondary education are eligible for merit scholarships based on academic accomplishment, extracurricular activities, contributions to their community and a research paper on a pool industry related topic. Each year an average of $25,000 is distributed to dependents of pool industry professionals.
