Gratitude to our scholarship donors
We are grateful to the many individuals, corporations, and foundations that have supported scholarships for Wilkes Honors College students since the College opened its doors in the Fall of 1999. Some of the scholarships below are endowed and are awarded each year, including the prestigious Henry Morrison Flagler Scholarship, whereas others are (or were) expendable on a yearly basis and will be available only if the donor renews the gift. This generosity has helped pave the way towards future successes of our bright, young minds within and beyond the FAU community.
