The first student to receive this scholarship is Joshua Nesta. Joshua is a junior in the entrepreneurship major. When asked to describe why he deserves this scholarship Joshua said,

“Ever since I was a young kid I dove headfirst into any project I was working on and would give it 110 percent effort. My adaptability and resilience have been the reason I have made it to Florida State University and the reason that I will one day become successful.”

“The Jim Moran School helped a bunch of crazy college kids turn an idea into the biggest nonprofit of its kind in the world.”
