Every day, students overcome tremendous obstacles to stay in school and continue their education, and every day South Florida nonprofit organizations provide support to help their cause. That’s why Sun Life Financial and the Miami Dolphins are teaming up to recognize their hard work and to help beat the odds.

The Sun Life Rising Star Awards program recognizes and provides resources to students in underserved communities who are committed to furthering their education and the nonprofit organizations who support them. Through the program, Sun Life provides grants, scholarships and other resources to the winning organizations and students.

Local judges. Local winners.
An independent local judging panel in South Florida will review entries and select four winning applications. Winning nonprofits will receive a one-time $50,000 grant and other unique experiences and resources. Winning students will receive a one-time $5,000 scholarship for post-secondary education.

How to apply.
Do you represent a nonprofit organization whose programs inspire students to stay in school? Do your programs teach skills that directly translate to educational success in high school and beyond? Do you work closely with local educational institutions to ensure that your students succeed? Are you located in South Florida?
If you answered yes to these questions, we encourage you to apply!
