Thanks to a generous gift from David C. Frederick, UHC Alumnus '83, the Honors College will for the first time award a scholarship in his name, which provides $10,000 in tuition support to three full-time undergraduate students for the 2015-2016 academic year. This scholarship was created specifically for high achieving students (3.5 cumulative GPA or above) who currently work a part-time or full-time job in order to pay for their education. It is intended to allow students to reduce the number of hours worked during the academic year so that they may devote more time to other academic pursuits, whether it be additional courses, research opportunities, study abroad, or community engagement, to name a few.
After earning a bachelor's degree at the University of Pittsburgh, David Frederick earned a Doctor of Philosophy degree at Oxford University in 1987 as a Rhodes Scholar. He is now a prominent appellate attorney in Washington, D.C.
