The Jeffrey Mavro Scholarship
The Jeffrey Mavro Memorial Technical Communication Scholarship is an endowed scholarship in memory of one of our alumni. As an undergraduate in Mercer's Technical Communication program, Jeff was an outgoing, creative, talented student who was beloved by fellow students, faculty, and staff. He earned his BS degree in 1995 and worked for several years in technical industries. He passed away suddenly, just a short time after beginning his graduate studies. Jeffrey is shown in the picture on the right along with Dr. Helen Grady.
The scholarship is made possible by gifts and grants from industry; Mercer faculty, students, and staff; Mercer STC Chapter gift; an SGA Beargrant; and a Merit Grant from the international Society for Technical Communication. One scholarship per year is awarded to an outstanding undergraduate major in Technical Communication.
