The DeBartolo Family Foundation Scholarship program was established in 2001 to recognize Tampa Bay area high school graduating seniors who have achieved academic excellence despite financial obstacles and are committed to continuing their education. A one-time scholarship award is made to students prior to the start of their freshman year of college and can be used for any college-related expenses.
