The RFSA endowed scholarship has helped several deserving students. Although this is an endowed scholarship, we want to continue developing funds to increase the amount we are able to provide the scholarship recipient. We are seeking donors who would be designated as “Sustaining Members” through a pledge of $100 annually for five years. Please consider becoming a sustaining member of the scholarship fund.


The RFSA endowed scholarship fund supports scholarships for undergraduate, degree-seeking students at USF St. Petersburg who hold at least a junior or senior classification at the time of the award. This scholarship is restricted to first-generation students, defined as neither parent having earned a bachelor’s degree. Applicants must include an additional essay regarding the student’s first-generation status and must have, and maintain, a grade point average of at least 3.2. The scholarships are rotated annually between the Colleges of Business, Education, and Arts and Sciences.

If you are interested in supporting this scholarship, please contact Alexis Searfoss at 727-873-4519.
