Lombardi Scholars Program

The Lombardi Scholars Program is a significant merit scholarship for students at the University of Florida. The scholarship offers around $3,000 a semester for a total of 8-10 semesters. The program was created in 2002 and named in honor of the university's ninth president, John V. Lombardi, who served from 1990 to 1999. Lombardi was one of the University of Florida's most popular and charismatic presidents, and directed the university during the 1990s, a time of unprecedented growth and achievement. While directing the state's flagship university, the size and quality of the student body grew, the faculty research grants increased, the national rankings steadily improved, the overall research expenditures doubled, and the university's endowment increased greatly.
