  • John Edward Memorial Scholarship

     

    The Fraternity of Phi Gamma Delta was established at The Florida State University in 1967 by Colonel Robert Shoemaker for the purpose of building and guiding future leaders.  That tradition continues 50 years later as Phi Gamma Delta inspires the prime essentials of true character in its members: friendship, knowledge, service, morality, and excellence.  We encourage not only our members, but all students at FSU, to embody those values as well.  To that end, Phi Gamma Delta sponsors the John Edward Memorial Scholarship to honor an incoming male first year student at The Florida State University.  John Edwards was a member of Phi Gamma Delta who passed away in 1993.  John was truly an amazing member, and his memory and infectious positive spirit influences our organization to this day.  This scholarship is awarded annually to a freshman male student who values scholarship, service and extracurricular activities as John Edwards did during his lifetime.  We will award $1,000 to use towards education purposes such as tuition, books, or room and board during the 2021 fall semester.  Incoming male freshman at The Florida State University are encouraged to apply if they meet the following criteria:

     

    1. Weighted GPA of 3.5 or higher
    2. Record of service to their community
    3. Record of service to their High School

    • Recommendation letters may also be submitted by email to info@ronbrown.org without penalty if they cannot be included with the student materials. Transcripts and recommendations given to students in sealed envelopes for inclusion with their materials is acceptable.

  • The Coolidge Scholarship

     

    The Coolidge Scholarship is a full-ride, four-year, merit scholarship that may be used by recipients for undergraduate study at any accredited college or university in the United States. Any high school junior who plans to enroll in college in the fall of 2022 and is an American citizen or legal permanent resident is eligible to apply (current high school seniors are not eligible to apply).

     

    Coolidge Scholars are selected based primarily on academic excellence. Secondary criteria include: an interest in public policy, an appreciation for the values President Coolidge championed, as well as humility and service. Today’s competitive academic culture regrettably sometimes drives students to hype their accomplishments and pursue ambitious efforts merely to attain credentials. The Coolidge Scholarship pushes back on this trend. Successful candidates are indeed accomplished, but exhibit humility with respect to their achievements and pursue things of genuine interest to them regardless of the perceived prestige associated with the activity.
