MIAMI (CBSMiami) — The Miami Dolphins are not just about football, the organization is also about helping South Florida students get the funding they need to pursue a future education.

Applications are now being accepted for the Nat Moore Scholarship & Grant Endowment Program.

In its second year, the program’s mission is to provide the youth of Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm Beach and Monroe counties with the financial resources needed to pursue avenues of education and training for employment readiness.

Both the scholarship and the grant are designed to increase efforts to bridge a gap between receiving financial assistance and obtaining a degree or vocational diploma.

Here are the requirements for the scholarship and grant.

Last year, five graduating seniors were the first recipients awarded the fund and were selected through an application process that showcased community service, leadership, financial need and academic standing.

This initiative aligns with the Miami Dolphins mission of “Teamwork at Work” — an effort to level 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.
