Scholarships for undergraduate students pursuing a degree in Science Education. (GF000035)


Recipients must be a full-time undergraduate student in their junior or senior year pursuing a degree in Science Education. Scholarship recipients will be selected on the basis of need and merit determined by the Director of Financial Aid. Preference will be given to renewing scholarship to the same student(s) in successive semesters. 


Mr. and Mrs. LaRose created an endowed scholarship fund when his son, Bryan J. LaRose, who was an FIT Alumni, passed in November of 2003. Due to many gifts from friends, colleagues, and family and a deposit of $12,560 from A. William and Margaret LaRose, the endowment was created with an amount of $26,500.
