Judith Mucci Scholarship Fund

This tuition scholarship is awarded to a student of outstanding professional promise from the East Central Florida Area.

Sun Coast Section of the Florida Chapter of the American Planning Association (FAPA)

Award to a 2nd year graduate student from one of the counties within the Sun Coast Section, located in the Tampa Bay area (Hillsborough County, Pinellas County, Manatee County, Sarasota County, Pasco County, Citrus County, Hernando County). See Dr. Steiner for more information.

Nominations Procedure: Students may be nominated (or may nominate themselves) for these awards. Letters of nomination should outline the unique qualification of the student for a specific award and provide supporting documentation (e.g., a resume) as needed. The letter of nomination will be taken into consideration when the Awards committee considers the qualifications of students for specific awards, but in each case the academic achievement and other information available to the faculty committee will also be considered. With the exception of the Judith Mucci Scholarship, the absence or presence of a letter of nomination for any award will not be used for or against any candidate for that specific award. Students who are interested in receiving the Judith Mucci Scholarship must provide a letter of nomination as described above. These nominations will be another form of information that the Awards Committee will use in deciding who wins these awards.
