The Division of Student Affairs realizes there can be more a meaningful college experience through financial scholarships. The hope is to assist a student who is currently working to have more time to study and be in the classroom.

A 1999 graduate of
Allen D. Nease High School, Josh was a student at UNF for three years when he
decided to leave school and enlist in the Marines. He chose the Marines
because of their elite status and, specifically, chose infantry as his
specialty knowing he would probably go to Iraq. Tragically on October 21,
2006, ten days before he was due to return home to Camp Lejune, North Carolina,
he was killed in action in the Anbar Province of Iraq.
He loved the Marine
Corps, his family and his country. An only child, Josh truly believed he
was fighting so that his mother and others could be safe. He felt that
fighting terrorism in Iraq would prevent having to fight it here.
In December 2006, Josh’s
mother and uncle, Amy Vazquez and David Tillis, established the Marine Corporal
Joshua C. Watkins Memorial Endowed Scholarship Fund at the University of North
Florida to honor Joshua’s sacrifice and aid returning veterans in continuing
their education, as Josh had planned to do. In the Fall 2007,
scholarships were made available for active duty, reserve or honorably
discharged military personnel enrolled full time at UNF, with preference given
Today, through the
generosity of others, notably the PGA Tour, and Ponte Vedra residents Robert
and Monica Jacoby, the endowment has grown to over $274,000. An endowed
scholarship exists in perpetuity, making this an excellent opportunity to honor
a local hero and show support for our local military personnel to whom we owe
our continued freedom.
