Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Scholarship

The Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Scholarship* serves to recognize the academic and service achievements of actively engaged students who best exemplify Dr. King's teachings through service and action. Selected recipients will receive a $1,000 scholarship to be used toward their UNF tuition.  Any student who meets the following eligibility requirements is encouraged to apply.
