Global Scholarship Fund Continues Adams' Legacy
President Adams  
Offering opportunities to students of all backgrounds and financial means has always been a cornerstone of FDU's mission. The J. Michael Adams Global Scholarship Fund continues this tradition. "The late President Adams was the leader in global education," says Rick Reiss, senior vice president for University Advancement.  "Driven by a profound belief that you can change what you can touch, he inspired our University to rediscover its global roots and aspire to influence the world."

The fund was created to honor Adams' memory, preserve his legacy and help fulfill his vision by supporting students who demonstrate a strong interest in global learning.  Scholarships will be awarded both to freshmen and transfer students from community colleges.  Additionally, funds have been set aside to assist students with travel expenses associated with international study. Financial need will be considered as well as academic merit.

Donations to this and other FDU scholarship funds can be made on-line, by phone, or by mail. Visit and click on "Campaign for Scholarships" for details.
