Business Ethics Initiative

Open to any USF Muma College of Business undergraduate student, the new Business Ethics Initiative is a new opportunity for USF to recognize undergraduate students who have made significant efforts to learn about and promote ethical behavior, specifically as it applies to business. Sponsored by the Exide Professorship, this project provides an avenue for up to three students to win a $1,000 scholarship based on their ability to detail projects, activities, or other programs that they have led or participated in that promoted ethical business practices.

All USF Muma College of Business undergraduate students are invited to participate in the challenge. Awardees will be selected on their efforts to lead, participate, and/or make significant contributions that enhance ethical business practices.

Eligibility Requirements

This award is only offered to USF Muma College of Business students. While preference is given to first time applicants, awardees from prior years are encouraged to apply.

Selection criteria

All documents will be evaluated by an awards committee selected by the dean of the USF Muma College of Business and consisting of chosen faculty, prominent business executives, and the senior director of undergraduate programs. Each application will be assessed based on:

  • Demonstrated record of activities that support and promote ethical business practices.
  • Professional communication skills as evidenced in the application essays.

The application is closed at this time.
