Jacksonville University’s Davis College of Business (DCOB) congratulates seniors Chris Garson and Brian Tye on earning the Zimmerman Family Scholarships for International Business. The scholarships are sponsored by Far East Brokers and Consultants of Jacksonville and the Zimmerman Family Foundation.
“We greatly appreciate the Zimmerman Family’s commitment to undergraduate international business education,” said Dr. Donnie Horner, director of the Davis Leadership Center. “These generous scholarships not only provide great resources for deserving students, but also serve as testimony to the value of international business education in an increasingly global economy.”
Garson is a double major in international business and economics. He also co-founded Hatua International, a successful nonprofit organization feeding hungry kids around the world, with two other JU students.
Tye is also a double major in international business and economics. He is part of the men’s rowing team at JU.
The selection committee evaluated student nominations made by DCOB faculty. The criteria includes undergraduate rising junior or senior majoring in International Business, 3.50 GPA or above preferred, with United States citizenship.
