We told you Monday about a slim number of high school seniors applying for college scholarships from the Village of Royal Palm Beach's Education Advisory Board. 

Village leaders say they got a last minute flood of applications for the six $1,000 scholarships, bringing the total to 69. 

The winners will be announced in April. 

The village awards the college cash to students who've earned a 3.0 GPA and have shown an interest in community service.  They must also show a willingness to reside in Royal Palm Beach upon their graduation from college.
