The Florida International University Scholarship Fishing Tournament, established in 2002, is a unique fundraising event benefiting the FIU Alumni Association’s Scholarship Fund. The tournament has raised more than $100,000 for student scholarships through sponsorships and boat registrations. Scholarships include the Legacy Scholarship, awarded to students whose parents, grandparents or siblings are graduates of the University, and the Panther Pride Scholarship, awarded to students demonstrating outstanding involvement in campus life and activities.
The tournament features fishing for Dolphin, however, prizes are also awarded for the biggest fun fish, which include Wahoo, Tuna or Kingfish.
