Shape the Future

Shape the Future of Florida Poly

Florida Polytechnic University is educating tomorrow’s leaders today. Through the support of our generous donors, we are transforming the future of technology and boosting Florida’s economy.


Scholarships enable students to attend Florida Poly and connect them with a STEM comprehensive education. By attending Florida Poly, students can experience in-class research, develop entrepreneurial skills and prepare to enter the workforce.

Research and Projects

Our students are uniquely situated with the opportunity to research and discover solutions to the world’s problems. In-class studies,  research and student projects are vital to building a brighter future.

Quality of Workforce

Your involvement directly supports our work to develop well-rounded graduates with marketable skills. As of January 2017, there were nearly 20,000 advertised job openings in core STEM fields, excluding the health industry, in the state of Florida. Florida Poly graduates are equipped with the tools and experience necessary to immediately dive into that market.

Head Start

Financial aid allows students to graduate debt-free and focus their efforts on school, not work. Without the additional financial pressures, students are more likely to remain full-time students, experience less stress and engage in extra-curricular activities that can escalate their career prospects. Additionally, students may invest any money saved into new enterprises and ventures. Your support is a head start for a Florida Poly student.

National Advantage

Innovation and product creation enable the country to advance in the global economy. By supporting Florida Poly’s efforts, you can have an impact on the nation’s global high-tech position.

Boosting the Economy

Both entrepreneurship and applied research will have a near-term impact on the advancement of technology and Florida’s economic growth. With each gift, you’re invigorating the state of Florida and furthering STEM ventures.
