The recent USF Muma College of Business Scholarship Luncheon honored nearly 175 students who received almost 450-thousand dollars in awards. On University Beat on WUSF 89.7, we meet a new scholarship recipient and catch up with some previous award-winning students who share what someone else’s generosity means to them.
