This endowment was established in 2011 to provide scholarships for students attending the University of Kentucky who are from the Tampa Bay area of Florida. The scholarship is awarded to students who are graduating seniors from a high school or certified home schooling program, or a G.E.D. recipient, in the Tampa Bay area. The eligible students will have an unweighted grade point average of 3.0 with a preference given to students with a 3.5 GPA or higher. To be eligible for the award, students must be enrolled in 12 or more credit hours and must attend classes on the main campus of the University of Kentucky. Preference is also given to those students with unmet financial need. Additionally, preference is given to students who have not received other scholarships that fully cover tuition. If no incoming freshman is eligible, the scholarship may be offered to a current student.
