July 2021 – In January of 2021 Esler Companies partnered with The George Snow Scholarship Fund to help deserving underrepresented high school students continue their education. Esler Companies has always been dedicated to empowering difference makers in the community and this spring the Company launched its fledgling Door of Opportunity scholarship program. Students from 8 of the cities Esler Cos operates in submitted applications to become the very first Door of Opportunity Scholars, a title that requires persistence, self-reliance, positivity, and a passion for education. The scholarships were not limited to 2 or 4 year colleges, but rather for any opportunity that would help these young adults find their unique path to the workplace.
Volunteers from the eight Esler Companies locations reviewed hundreds of applications and interviewed 80 finalists. Ultimately, Esler Cos has committed to assisting 56 students in their pursuit of higher education for the Fall of 2021 with plans to increase that number in 2022.
While the recipients will certainly benefit from the scholarship, the impact on Esler teammates has also been profound. Here’s what teammates had to say about the experience:
—“We met so many outstanding young people. The experience has reaffirmed my belief that there is a lot of good in this world. “
—“Changing the world 56 kids at a time!”
—”Bravo! This experience has been an intense dose of perspective and inspiration in equal measure.”
—“Proud to be a part of this process & part of a company that doesn’t just talk the talk but is taking action to make positive and impactful community contributions.”
—“We may have gotten more out of it than the kids. “
—“This was such a gratifying experience and it solidified how awesome this company is. I’m even more grateful to be a part of Esler Co. These young adults really blew me away with how insightful and thoughtful they were during the interviews. They’re all future difference makers in my book! Glad we can help them get there.”
We look forward to sharing more about the Door of Opportunity Program, as well as our outstanding Esler Scholars and the incredible work they’re already doing!

About George Snow Scholarship Fund
The George Snow Scholarship Fund is dedicated to helping deserving students within the community achieve their career goals through their pursuit of higher education. By providing financial assistance and a host of supplementary support services, we ensure that your scholarship recipients have the resources they need to thrive academically.
The Fund was established in 1982 as a memorial to George Snow, a Boca Raton developer who lost his life in a helicopter accident in 1980. Mr. Snow moved to Boca Raton in 1958 to take a position as a high school math teacher at what is now Atlantic High School in Delray Beach. Later Mr. Snow moved his career into the fields of real estate and construction, but he always remembered the importance of education and during his lifetime was active in trying to help those individuals who were trying to help themselves. These same ideals are those that shape the mission of the George Snow Scholarship Fund.
Since its inception the Fund has awarded over 13million dollars in educational grants. In the year 2020 alone, the Scholarship Fund awarded over $1,500,000 in scholarships and scholars support services to 161 Snow Scholars. This level of support places the Fund as one of Palm Beach County’s largest sources of educational grants.
Known as experts in scholarship administration, the George Snow Scholarship Fund has developed a reputation for creating innovative programs which address the educational needs of those in our community. About – The George Snow Scholarship Fund.
