Summer Scholarships

If more USF students graduated within four years or so of enrolling, it would help their bottom line while meeting one of the university’s biggest goals.So the school is offering students who are close to getting their degrees scholarships to cover up to 12 credit hours this summer. On University Beat on WUSF 89.7, we’ll meet one of the students in the pilot program – plus we’ll find out how it might help USF achieve the elusive and important preeminence status.
