SCHOLARSHIP DETAILS

The RFSA endowed scholarship has helped several deserving students at the USF St. Petersburg campus. This fund supports scholarships for undergraduate, degree-seeking students at the USF St. Petersburg campus 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.

SUPPORT THE RFSA ENDOWED SCHOLARSHIP

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.

If you would like to show support, you may make make a gift to the USF St. Petersburg campus Retired Faculty & Staff Endowed Scholarship.
