Martin Luther King Jr. Scholarship

Each February, the University of North Florida honors the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. with a scholarship luncheon. The event provides funding for a scholarship that is awarded to undergraduate students who have worked hard academically and have participated in campus and or community service.
