STEPS to CF awards scholarships to deserving fifth-grade students who have excelled academically and who can benefit from the incentive of having a college scholarship at an early age. The students must maintain good grades and remain drug and crime free through their high school years. In return, each receives $4,000 toward an education at CF.
In Citrus County, there are currently 15 STEPS to CF endowments in place; 45 scholarships have been awarded since the program began in 2005. The CF Foundation is only seven STEPS to CF endowments away from reaching its goal of having a scholarship available to both a deserving young man and young woman at every elementary school in Citrus County.
