Phyllis Mozilo was most concerned about students that didn't believe a private university education was within their reach; mostly because of financial restrictions. Phyllis was interested in providing to others that which was not available to her.
This scholarship makes funds available to enrolled students who are pell eligible and maintain a GPA consistent with university standards. Each University administers the scholarship based on the individual's need. The Mozilo family provides guidance in criteria for the scholarship and makes recommendations, but does not choose the individual candidates. If you are interested in this scholarship, it is best to contact the individual university to discuss.
