On May 11, 2022, Florida State University’s Dedman College of Hospitality announced its receipt of a $4.15 million gift by an anonymous donor. The donation will be used to renovate and establish a scholarship program for first-generation students.

It was noted in the statement that a significant portion of the donation would establish an endowment fund to support the new scholarship to be used for first-generation hospitality students.

“This gift will bring the Dedman College of Hospitality revitalized facilities to help students thrive in their studies and help attract prospective students,” FSU President Richard McCullough said.
