The Nat Moore Scholarship and Vocational Endowment is in its third year under the Miami Dolphins Foundation having impacted 14 students throughout South Florida. Last year, seven graduating seniors received a scholarship and two were awarded a grant and were selected through an application process that showcased community service, leadership, financial need and academic standing. This initiative aligns with the Miami Dolphins Foundation’s commitment towards leveling the playing field through the power of teamwork to inspire a healthier, more educated and united South Florida Community.

The Fund is a continuation of the Nat Moore Foundation, which started in 1998 to serve the youth of South Florida through education. The Miami Dolphins Foundation through the Nat Moore Scholarship Fund is committed to raising $10 million in 10 years to fund educational opportunities for South Florida youth. This commitment will foster the next generation of industry and community leaders by providing students who are achieving academically and who give back to their communities with the opportunity to attain their educational goals.
