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.
