Ashley’s Scholarship

In honor of former colleague Ashley Hardaway Theriot, the Gulf Coast Citizen Diplomacy Council, with the support of her family & friends, created an endowed study abroad scholarship in her memory at the University of West Florida. Click here to learn more.

Ashley was generous even in death with six successful organ transplants. With this scholarship, we honor her adventuresome spirit, dedication to service, and joie de vivre. She was an intrepid traveler and was dedicated to citizen diplomacy, the concept that closing the gaps between people and cultures is a responsibility we each have in creating a better world.

And if you are wondering why study abroad is important, allow us to explain.

Ashley believed in the power of citizen diplomacy & loved a good adventure. If you are a student at the University of West Florida, and are interested in expanding your world, you should contact the UWF study abroad office.

If you would like to contribute to the endowment, you may send your check directly to the UWF Foundation with “AHT Study Abroad Scholarship” in the memo line.
