Carter Opportunity Scholarship

Recipient must be a student in the FAMU-FSU College of Engineering who demonstrates financial need and/or is a first-generation college student. The scholarship shall be awarded only if the student completes a degree in engineering within six (6) years. Preference shall be given to students who have a federal Work Study job on campus, who seek academic support and mentoring, and who may themselves be tutors or mentors to other students.

One of the purposes of this scholarship is to increase diversity at Florida State University. Any student may apply to be considered for the award; however, it is the preference of the donor that the recipient be from a traditionally underrepresented group in the field of engineering, including women and especially those of Latin or Hispanic descent.
