Dean J. Murray Gibson and student scholars recipients

This year the fourth Donor Recognition and Student Awards Ceremony at the FAMU-FSU College of Engineering continued the college’s long-standing tradition of bringing together many generous friends with the students who directly benefit from their support. Meeting with the donors for the first time is always emotional for the recipients who are so thankful for the funding and the donors who get to see the warm smile of a promising young person getting to pursue his or her dream. During the event, scholarship and fellowship recipients can meet face to face with their benefactor to express gratitude, talk about their current projects and career goals.

Many individuals, corporations and foundations generously donate to the college each year through scholarships and fellowships awarded based on merit and financial need. The entire FAMU-FSU Engineering community is extremely grateful to the donors of the awards. For a full listing of awards, see below.
