History

First documented in 2004, the Faculty Senate Scholarship gives $4,500 merit scholarship to a deserving sophomore every academic year. The faculty Senate Scholarship award is distributed equally over three years. The existing endowment has come from many years of generous faculty and staff donations and, when available, matching funds from foundations. In order to give Florida Tech colleges and schools a chance to award their students the scholarship, a round robin was established.
