Ada Rosenson Dorfeld Florida Opportunity Scholarship for the College of Education

Fund Purpose
The spendable income of the Fund shall be used to support scholarships for the Bernie and Chris Machen Florida Opportunity Scholars Program to students from Dade and Broward County, with a preference to those studying Primary Education in the College of Education.

This scholarship fund was established in 2013 by Ada Rosenson Dorfeld to provide support for scholarships in the Machen Florida Opportunity Scholars Program, with a preference for students from Dade and Broward County pursuing studies in Elementary Education in the College of Education.

Ada earned her Bachelor of Arts and Master of Education degrees from the University of Florida in 1952 and 1955, respectively, with a focus on Elementary Education. Throughout her career, she devoted herself to teaching in Miami-Dade County, leaving a lasting impact on her students.

The primary goal of this scholarship fund is to create a lasting legacy that empowers future teachers. By offering financial assistance to those who require it the most, Ada envisions enabling aspiring educators to pursue their dreams and make a significant difference in the lives of others.

Ada once remarked, “Without a doubt, education changes lives. Scholarships open the door for people to go farther and achieve what they never thought possible.”

Through this fund, Ada’s vision is realized as deserving students are provided with the means to achieve their educational aspirations and contribute positively to society.

If you share Ada’s passion and believe in the transformative power of education, we humbly ask you to consider contributing to this scholarship. Your support can make a profound difference in the lives of talented and ambitious students, helping them build a brighter future for themselves and their communities.
