The Hopkins Team prides itself on being a family-oriented real estate company in Broward County, Florida. Our active involvement in the Broward County community has opened our eyes to all the opportunities that could further help and improve this wonderful community. One of these is by providing college scholarships to deserving high school leaders.
The youth play a huge role in society. They are the future movers and shakers, the backbone of the nation, and our future leaders. That’s why it’s important to shape our youth and provide them with opportunities that can help them grow and thrive.
The youth of Broward County are more than just students; they’re leaders. While they may not be top of their class or the star athlete, they are positive role models in their own way.
Once we recognized the potential of the young people in our community and their role in our society, we came up with The Hopkins Team Homes Scholarship Program. This program awards college scholarships to young, talented, and deserving high school seniors in Broward County, Florida.
The Hopkins Team Homes Scholarship Program is currently being managed by Dondi Hopkins, our amazing team leader. Dondi and her family have always been involved with the local community by helping out schools, businesses, and communities.

The Hopkins Team Homes Scholarship Program is a college scholarship program that awards $1,000 college scholarships to two high school seniors, one young man and one young woman, in Broward County.
