– Florida Tech has received a $69,000 grant from the trustees of the Lettie Pate Whitehead Foundation, Inc. of Atlanta, Ga. The grant is for general
scholarships during the 2006-2007 academic year.
“We are very grateful for this addition to our scholarship funding and thank the Lettie Pate Whitehead Foundation once again for their generosity,” said
Florida Tech President Anthony J. Catanese.
The foundation offers support to the nine southeastern states. Among its causes are scholarship awards to colleges for deserving female students. The
foundation also supports the needy and provides operating grants to a small number of 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 the only independent scientific and technological university in the Southeast and was one of just five Florida schools selected in Barron’s
Best Buys in College Education. It is also named among America’s best colleges in U.S. News & World Report.
