Six students awarded scholarships through UWF Military and Veterans Resource Center
The University of West Florida’s Military and Veterans Resource Center recently awarded scholarships to six students who are military veterans or dependents of active or retired military at their annual scholarship luncheon held on Wednesday, July 30.
The Brig. Gen. and Mrs. Michael Ferguson Scholarship Endowment, Buzz and Larue Ambersley Memorial Scholarship and the Navy Federal Credit Union Scholarship made these awards possible.
Brig. Gen. and Mrs. Michael Ferguson created an endowment in 2001 to provide scholarships for veteran dependents to pursue their education at UWF. The Brig. Gen. and Mrs. Michael Ferguson Scholarship assists qualified sons and daughters of military veterans who demonstrate leadership capability and commitment to service. Through this scholarship, funds are provided annually to undergraduate student scholars enrolled in the College of Business.
