The scholarship competition promotes intellectual debate and discussion on ethics related to students’ area of study at UNT. The goal is to encourage applicants to reach a higher level of ethical understanding in their personal and professional lives.
The scholarships debuted in 2011, when longtime friends of the university Nicholas D. and Anna G. Ricco provided a generous gift that was placed in an endowment.
The award, ranging from $3,000-$5,000, is open to full-time undergraduate and graduate students in good academic standing.
