Endowment Fund…The Northeast Florida Section of ASHE is pleased to announce that it has established the ASHE Scholarship

Endowment Fund at the University of North Florida (UNF).  The endowment fund is the first of its kind of any ASHE section.  The endowment will enable UNF to identify, recruit, and retain future leaders of the First Coast region of Florida who pursue an interest in the transportation industry.  

The Foundation policy for establishing an endowed account requires a minimum contribution of $25,000.  The $25,000 can be deposited over a total of 5 years ($5,000 per year).  The UNF Foundation, a non-profit organization, processes the selection of the recipient(s) based on criteria that ASHE provides.  If donations to the endowment reach $100,000, it is eligible for state matching funds of $50,000.  

Today, Northeast Florida is one the most dynamic and economically viable regions of the country.  In order to continue to grow and prosper, Jacksonville and its contingent communities must have a well-educated and visionary cadre of leaders.   By offering a value-added education through the ASHE scholarship program to outstanding transportation students, our Section will expand its role as a strategic partner in the region’s economic development initiatives.   

You…the community of highway professionals are the real champions here.  You support the Scholarship Endowment Fund every year by participating in the Annual Scholarship Golf Tournament and you contribute every day by mentoring our young professionals.  Thank you for your continued support of ASHE and especially the ASHE Scholarship Endowment Fund.
