MELBOURNE, FLA. — In 2007 Florida Tech has received a total of $72,000 in grants from the trustees of the Lettie Pate Whitehead Foundation Inc. of Atlanta,
Ga. The grants fund general scholarships during the 2007-2008 academic year.
“We are very grateful for this scholarship funding and thank the Lettie Pate Whitehead Foundation once again for its generosity,” said Florida Tech
President Anthony J. Catanese.
Sixteen students who are currently enrolled at Florida Tech receive Lettie Pate Whitehead Scholarships.
The foundation, which has given to Florida Tech since 1986, is dedicated to the support of women in nine southeastern states. The foundation devotes most
of its resources to the Lettie Pate Whitehead scholarship program, which provides scholarship grants to schools and colleges for deserving female students.
The foundation also provides a small number of operating grants to selected institutions serving the needs of elderly women.
The Lettie Pate Whitehead Foundation is a not-for-profit corporation governed by a self-perpetuating board of trustees. The foundation shares a common
administrative arrangement with the Joseph B. Whitehead Foundation, the Lettie Pate Evans Foundation and the Robert W. Woodruff Foundation.
Florida Tech is one of just five Florida schools selected in Barron’s Best Buys in College Education and was named among America’s best colleges in U.S.
