The Jose Antonio Echeverria Scholarship is awarded every year to a student of Architecture, History, Politics & International Relations, or Religious Studies at FIU. In addition, the student must be enrolled in the Undergraduate Certificate in Cuban and Cuban-American Studies. The scholarship was created to honor the memory of Jose Antonio Echeverria, President of the University Students Federation (FEU in Spanish) at the University of Havana in 1957, who was murdered while defending democracy in Cuba. The purpose of this scholarship is to promote the understanding of the political, social, and economic realities of 1950s Cuba, and in particular of the life and legacy of Jose Antonio Echeverria. Although Echeverria was an architecture student, the scholarship is awarded to encourage students to become active in governmental and political affairs. In 2007, Echeverria's family and friends donated $100,000 to establish the scholarship fund at FIU.The scholarship awards $4,000 each academic year to cover tuition, books, and other educational expenses. This year, to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the Jose Antonio Echeverria Scholarship, the Echeverria family has decided to grant two scholarships instead of just one. The best two applications will be awarded $4,000 each.
