Physical Plant Endowed Scholarship

"An opportunity to enhance relationships with business partners as we work together to ensure students become educated in fields of our common interests"


The Physical Plant Endowed Scholarship Fund was created by donations from Physical Plant employees to start a program that reflected the shared interests of our business partners while supporting our departmental mission.

Employees and friends of Florida Gulf Coast University established a scholarship fund to financially assist qualified students enrolled in environmental engineering, civil engineering, and environmental studies; annually, in perpetuity.

"By lightening the financial burden associated with the pursuit of a higher education you have brought what I once believed to be financially unattainable within my reach."


Candice Miranda, double major in Civil & Environmental Engineering

"I am excited about anticipating what I will learn this year in college as well as about becoming one year nearer to my goal of being an engineer. Thank you again for helping me to get closer to this dream." 

We are quite excited about the opportunity to select recipients that reflect our shared interests, such as engineering and sustainable development, and to have an impact on their academic and professional careers.

Our mission is to cultivate environmentally conscious and productive citizens to take us through this new millennium with pride and promise, out of their responsibility to sustainable development.
