Throughout the years Southport Land and Commercial Company has given high school and college scholarships in communities where the Company has substantial property holdings. In 2009, the Company established “The Southport Land and Commercial Company Scholarships” at Santa Rosa Junior College in Santa Rosa, California, with the first scholarships being awarded in the 2010-2011 academic year. The amounts of these scholarships and the fields of study in which they are awarded periodically change. As currently set-up, these scholarships assist students in three different fields of study: Real Estate; Small Business Management; and Civil Engineering. The scholarships are awarded annually at the Circle of Honor reception on the SRJC campus, and are administered by the Santa Rosa Junior College Foundation.
