Investing in the Future of Technology
And Supporting Local Area Students
Financially supporting high school youth who are interested in technology is extremely important to us. In December 2016, the employees of Geographic Solutions established the Paul Toomey IT Scholarship – to recognize a deserving high school senior who is actively pursuing a career in a computer-related field of study.
Not only does the scholarship give students an opportunity to pursue their dreams, but it creates and encourages students to return to the Tampa Bay Area post-graduation – which further strengthens our technology landscape.
The scholarship, now in its fifth year, is funded by employee contributions and doubled with a 100 percent match by Paul Toomey himself. As our employee count grows, so has our collection effort. In 2021, Geographic Solutions’ collection efforts increased and the scholarship was awarded to three recipients. Pictured below are the current and past recipients of the Paul Toomey IT Scholarship..
For more information, see the list for financial aid and scholarships on the Pinellas County Schools, Hillsborough County Schools, and Pasco County Schools websites each January. Applicants are notified in April of each year by email and formal letter.
