FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

FORT LAUDERDALE-DAVIE, Fla. – Nova Southeastern University’s (NSU) H. Wayne Huizenga College of Business and Entrepreneurship received a $10,000 grant from The UPS Foundation, which drives global citizenship and philanthropic programs for UPS (NYSE:UPS).

The grant will be used to provide scholarships to academically gifted but financially disadvantaged undergraduate students who aspire to business careers and who have a desire to support their communities.

“We truly appreciate this grant which enables us to provide scholarships to deserving students as part of NSU’s Realizing Potential campaign,” said J.

In support of this strategic approach, THE UPS Foundation has identified the following focus areas for giving: volunteerism, diversity, community safety and the environment.
