BOCA RATON, FL — The Kelsey B. Diamantis TS Scholarship Family Foundation, Inc., dba Dollars 4 Tic Scholars, a 501c3 foundation established in 2014 in West Boca Raton to award college scholarships to students who have Tourette Syndrome across the country, announces an expansion of their scholarship award offerings. The organization has partnered with PC Professor to offer Vo/Tech scholarships of $1000 to $5000 toward career technical computer certifications at the PC Professor Boca Raton and West Palm Beach, FL locations for applicants who have Tourette Syndrome.
According to co-founder and organization namesake Kelsey Diamantis, who has Tourette Syndrome and is now a resident of St. Petersburg, FL, “One of the growth goals of our 501c3 organization has been to offer scholarships to encourage as many people who have Tourette Syndrome as we can to follow their career dreams. We realized that a four-year college program may not be a fit for everyone who has Tourette Syndrome. With a Vocational/Technical scholarship as our next growth goal for 2019, we were thrilled to form an alliance with PC Professor in Palm Beach County. Their dedication to providing effective computer training so that a student is fully employable upon completion of their courses matched our commitment to excellence for our students.”
The Dollars 4 Tic Scholars 2019 Tourette Syndrome Vocational/Technical Scholarship Application for PC Professor Training Programs are accessible through the company’s online application. Programs eligible for the scholarships may range from $7000 to $12,500 and include:
- A+ & Network+ certifications (Computer Repair & Technical Support)
• MCSE: Cloud Platform & Infrastructure (Windows Server 2016)
• CCNA: Hands-on Cisco Networking
• Database: Data Analytics & Management (SQL Server 2016)
• Desktop Software (Windows, Word, Excel, Access, Project, Outlook & QuickBooks)
Robert Fellman, Director at PC Professor, commented, “We love to remove barriers and help people improve their lives and careers. Our hands-on training style is preferred by many students and employers. This allows us to focus more closely on the career goals of the students and keep quality education affordable.”
