Background

Group with scholarship check

The tournament, established in 2002, is a unique fundraising event benefiting the FIU Alumni Association's Scholarship Fund. Funds are raised through sponsorships and boat registrations. Scholarships include the Legacy Scholarship, awarded to students whose parents, grandparents or siblings are graduates of the University and the Panther Pride Scholarship awarded to students demonstrating outstanding involvement in campus life and activities. The cost to participate in the tournament is $400 per boat with a maximum of four anglers and $50 for each additional angler in the same boat.

The tournament features fishing for Dolphin, however, prizes are also awarded for the biggest fun fish, which include Wahoo, Tuna or Kingfish.

Reel in Dollars for Student Scholars!

DOCK PARTY

In addition to recognizing our Fishing Tournament winners and the 2016 Alumni Association Scholarship recipients, the Dock Party is open to the public and features food, music and activities. There will be activities for all ages. Join the fun for a good cause.

"It is critical for students to have scholarships to be able to pursue an education. To be part of helping meet that shortfall is a good feeling."Duane Wiles, Alumni Association Executive Director
