The Steven Joel Sotloff Memorial Endowed Scholarship Fund is awarded annually to a student pursuing journalism who demonstrates both academic success and financial need, and who is also a Florida resident. The scholarship is provided by 2Lives: Steven Joel Sotloff Memorial Foundation.
In September of 2014, Steven Joel Sotloff, a journalist from South Florida, lost his life at the hands of Islamic State group militants. On Sunday, his parents Arthur and Shirley Sotloff, stood on the field of Sun Life Stadium minutes before their son’s beloved Dolphins took the field, and fearlessly showed the world that Steven’s legacy lives on.
A $100,000 endowment, led by the Autumn Ridge Foundation with the help of School of Communication alumni, will honor a beloved public relations professor and provide lasting scholarship support to students who excel at writing.
