The Suncoast Georgia Tech Alumni Network raises funds throughout the year for the purpose of awarding an annual scholarship for a local student attending Georgia Tech.

Godbold Family Foundation Scholarship

The guiding principle of the Godbold Scholarship Program is to provide economic access while rewarding academic achievement. Francis S. (Bo) Godbold earned a bachelor's degree from Georgia Tech in Industrial Engineering in 1965 and currently is Vice Chairman for Raymond James Financial, Inc. The Godbold family initiated an undergraduate scholarship program through their family foundation to help academically qualified students who face financial challenges in meeting their educational goals. The Godbold family hopes that the Godbold Scholarships will inspire the students who receive them to succeed in life and, in time, become Tech scholarship donors themselves.

In order to be considered for a Godbold Scholarship the student must:

  • Complete the regular financial aid application process outlined at here
  • Be an entering freshman from the Tampa Bay, Florida, region or specific counties in South Carolina, North Carolina, and Tennessee
  • Have an SAT score of 1500 or higher (combination of math and verbal scores only)
  • Demonstrate financial need beyond resources the student’s family can provide

The student’s demonstrated financial need is met with Institute gift aid that is matched with a Godbold Scholarship in combination with a $2,500 Work Study opportunity. The Godbold Scholarship is an annual offer that may be renewed for up to three additional years (a total of eight semesters). Future eligibility and awards will be based upon the student’s academic achievement, financial need, and availability of funds. Historically, the largest number of Godbold Family Scholarship recipients have been residents of the Tampa Bay area.
