Two South Florida high school seniors heading to Florida A&M University (FAMU) are among the six recipients of the Miami Dolphins Foundation Nat Moore Endowment Scholarships.
Chiyle Briggins of Doctors Charter School of Miami Shores will attend FAMU to study computer science and software engineering. Meanwhile, Tanaé Price of Miami Norland Senior High School will attend FAMU to study business administration.
Briggins and Price were selected through an application process that demonstrates community service, leadership, financial need and academic standing, the selected student will receive tuition support towards their university or vocational program of choice.
“As stewards of the community it is our responsibility to support the future leaders in our youth and by giving them access to gain greater knowledge, we hope to provide them with the tools to make an impact in South Florida and the world,” Miami Dolphins Senior Vice President of Special Project & Alumni Relations Nat Moore said. “We are so proud to select these outstanding students who have displayed exemplary character, hard work and academic success as the 2021 recipients of the Nat Moore Scholarship & Vocational Grant Endowment Program. Moore played wide receiver for the Miami Dolphins during his 13-year NFL career.
In recognition, the recipients were also invited to attend a Miami Dolphins training camp practice at the Baptist Health Training Complex on Monday, August 2.
The Scholarship and Vocational Grand Endowment Program is a continuation of the Nat Moore Foundation, which started in 1998 to serve the youth of South Florida through education. In its fourth year under the Miami Dolphins Foundation, the program’s mission is to provide South Florida with the financial resources needed to pursue avenues of education and training for employment readiness. Both the scholarship and the grant are expressly designed to bolster efforts to bridge a gap between receiving financial assistance and obtaining a degree or vocational diploma. This initiative aligns with the Miami Dolphins Foundation’s commitment of leveraging the power of sports and entertainment to inspire a healthier, more educated and united South Florida community.
