Alumni Scholarships

Karen Schmitt Roberts Internship Impact Fund

This scholarship exists to provide need-based travel scholarships to Stetson University students. It is a one-time, non-renewable scholarship that helps cover the costs associated with an internship, such as summer housing, flights or gas expenses. This gives students the opportunity to network and collaborate with professionals, companies and other universities across the nation and around the world.

Donor Funded Scholarships

Students who are eligible for Stetson University Scholarships and Grants may also be eligible to receive a named endowed scholarship. Especially meaningful, named scholarships are those made possible by the generosity of alumni and other Stetson University friends. Some donors are Stetson alumni, who were themselves the beneficiaries of student aid. An endowed scholarship can establish a direct connection between you and the donor; most donors welcome the opportunity to meet or correspond with the students who receive their awards.

Preference is given to students who demonstrate financial need. Students must have submitted the FAFSA to be considered for this scholarship.
