How Can I Get a Scholarship From FGCU?

The FGCU Foundation Scholarship Application is Currently Open

Paying for college can seem like a daunting task, but there are tools to help make the experience more affordable. Through the generosity of many individuals, alumni, local philanthropists, nonprofit organizations and corporations, the Florida Gulf Coast University Foundation has established academic merit and financial need-based scholarships for FGCU students. The Foundation provided over $6 million dollars in scholarships this past year.

Benjamin Fletcher - CEO of Pyure Brands Organic Stevia and Entrepreneurship Scholarship Donor

Thank You To Our Donors

Scholarship donors have the power to help those in need to make the possible real. These are some of the incredible foundations that have given our students in need a fighting chance at receiving an immersive and experiential entrepreneurial education:

Pyure Brands has donated to entrepreneurial scholarship funding at FGCU. It is because of donors like them, students have the opportunity to focus on school instead of a part-time job in an unrelated field. If you would like to become a donor for the benefit of aspiring student eagle entrepreneurs, please visit FGCU Advancement 

With the help of the scholarships that I received, I was able to focus all my time on school and my music career. Thank you.
