The Theodore R. and Vivian M. Johnson Scholarship Foundation has partnered with the University of West Florida and challenged UWF to increase both endowment and annual scholarship support for students with financial need. With this challenge, comes a significant commitment from both the Johnson Scholarship Foundation and the University of West Florida.
The Johnson Scholarship Foundation has pledged $700,000, over five years, to the UWF Foundation as a two-part challenge gift to support need-based scholarships at the University of West Florida. The challenge supports both endowment and annual scholarships.
- For the endowment challenge gift, the Johnson Scholarship Foundation has pledged $600,000 and is challenging UWF to raise $1 million for need-based scholarship endowments over the next five years.
- For the annual gift challenge, the Johnson Scholarship Foundation has pledged $100,000, over five years, to challenge others to support First Generation Scholarships at UWF. Gifts to the First Generation Scholarship are also currently matched 100% by the State of Florida First Generation Matching Grant Program.
