Scholarship Details


The award is made possible by contributions from the Moffitt family. Faculty, staff, alumni and friends recognize the importance of scholarships in encouraging students to aim for excellence. The generous gifts from individual members of these various groups allow us to provide financial support for students who have demonstrated superior achievements or skills, thereby encouraging their continued efforts and the overall atmosphere of vigorous research and creativity. The criteria for this scholarship are established at the college level, and a committee of faculty from various departments selects the recipient.
