The Honorable William Webb, a member of the University of North Carolina Board of Governors, has joined with Fayetteville State University (FSU) to establish an endowed scholarship in the amount of $50,000. The Ronald B. Lewis Endowed Scholarship Fund will support FSU students who served in the United States armed forces.
"I am pleased and honored to establish this scholarship in support of the many men and women who served in this country's armed forces," Webb said. "This is my way of thanking them for their unselfish service, and it also allows me to pay homage to a childhood friend, Ronald B. Lewis, who served his country with pride and dignity."
To be eligible for the scholarship, students must have a minimum grade point average of 2.5 and have served in any branch of the armed forces of the United States, without regard to character of their discharge. Students of any classification and geographic location are eligible to apply. Recipients will be selected by a committee who will evaluate each application.
