The Jenkins Scholars Program is one of the highest funded academic scholarships at USF. The George Jenkins Scholarships are funded through the George Jenkins Foundation, which was founded by the late George Jenkins, the initial founder and owner of Publix Supermarkets.
A select group of Jenkins Scholars are elected annually from a statewide competition of high school seniors who are admitted to USF as freshmen. All of these scholars are economically disadvantaged, but are usually in the top five percent of their high school senior class.
The Jenkins Scholars Program is designed to provide academic and personal support services for all scholars, freshmen through senior year. The scholars participate in various scholarly and cultural activities, such as academic monitoring, mentoring activities, academic/personal development seminars, career advising, graduate school assistance and planned cultural activities with the Jenkins family.
