At least one scholarship will be awarded each year to a student majoring in entrepreneurship at Florida State University who has financial need. Preference will be given to a student who has been adopted. Each recipient must maintain a minimum 3.0 GPA or better in order to be eligible to receive the scholarship each year.

Applications for this scholarship are now closed. Applications will open again for the following year in Summer 2019.


The 2017-2018 recipient of this scholarship is Brandon Szakacs. Brandon is a commercial entrepreneurship major, who is also pre-med.

He chose this path because he believes the skills and knowledge gained through the entrepreneurship program would allow him to work within all aspects of the medical field and put him in the best position to make a difference in the lives of others.
