JOHN AND DOROTHY RUFFIN ENDOWED SCHOLARSHIP

GAP SCHOLARSHIP FUND

As a result of a decreased in Federal Student Financial Aid, nearly 70% of our students will have a financial gap of $3,000 to $5,000. With more than 80% of our students who depend on financial aid and come from homes where the annual family income is less than $24,000, the opportunity to obtain a college education will become difficult for many. Hundreds of talented and deserving students will be left behind.

Because of this great need, Florida Memorial University is seeking your support. Your support will play a significant role in ensuring that all students have an opportunity to pursue a college education. Your gift will qualify for a tax deduction, and also as an investment in the education of young people.

STUDENT EMERGENCY FUND CAMPAIGN

The Student Emergency Fund was established to provide assistance for Florida Memorial University students who are experiencing hardship as a result of COVID-19.

Campaign 100
