"Beth Juge Memorial STEM Scholarship"
The Beth Juge Memorial Scholarship was established to commemorate the life of Beth Juge and support high achieving, underrepresented Honors students in the Sciences. Beth Juge graduated from Kansas University in 1966 with a B.S. degree in Chemistry, one of the few women graduates in the Sciences. She was hired by Shell Oil Co., in Houston, Texas as a quality control chemist. It was there that she met her future husband, Frank Juge, who was employed as a Research Chemist. In 1967 they were married, and in 1968 they moved to Orlando, Florida, when her husband joined the faculty of Florida Technical University (now UCF) as a charter member of the faculty. In August of 1995 she underwent surgery for Colon Cancer, and after a courageous battle against the disease she passed away in May of 2001. In her memory her friends and family established the Beth Juge Scholarship.
This scholarship is available to Burnett Honors College students who are majoring in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) fields with 90 credit hours or less completed.
