The J. Ollie Edmunds Distinguished Scholarship Program is a nationally competitive merit-based college scholarship program designed to attract top student scholars with leadership potential to Stetson University’s campus. It pays expenses for four years at Stetson for students who exhibit exemplary academic and personal leadership. Edmunds Scholars, in addition to their academic abilities and intelligence, must have strong character and integrity along with the potential to be outstanding leaders. Intellectual distinction alone is insufficient for selection as an Edmunds Scholar. Edmunds Scholars, like Rhodes Scholars, are chosen based on a combination of their intellectual excellence, personality, and leadership. Candidates should have active co-curricular involvement, participation in athletics or physical fitness activities, discipline, integrity, character, strong written and verbal communication skills, creativity, and the potential to be well-rounded leaders and contributors in the Stetson University community.


Stetson University is ranked third among the South’s top regional universities for academic quality in the 2009 U.S. News and World Report’s “America’s Best Colleges” publication.
