The Palm Beach North Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s mission is to fund education opportunities for college-bound student leaders who live or attend school in the Palm Beach North region.

John C. Giba Student Leadership Awards Program and Chamber Foundation Scholarships
The Foundation was formed in 1998 to oversee the endowment established through a donation from John C. Giba, a Jupiter-Tequesta businessman who believed in the importance of student leadership through education. Over the years, The Foundation has grown to provide more scholarship opportunities in our region through donations made by Chamber members and local businesses.
The John C. Giba Student Leadership Awards Program aims to encourage, recognize, and award selected High School seniors who have demonstrated leadership potential through a combination of academic excellence, community service, and extra-curricular activities. The Chamber Foundation Scholarships award college-bound seniors who demonstrate leadership potential and have a financial need.
Scholarship applications are live and can be found here. Applications must be submitted by 5 p.m. February 17, 2023.
