John DeGrove Legacy Fund

The Department of Urban and Regional Planning is committed to providing leadership in the field of planning through education, research, scholarship, and community engagement. Our mission is to prepare planning professionals and researchers for national and global practice by promoting the ideals of social responsibility, sustainability, equity, diversity, and public service. Inspired by the leadership of John DeGrove – former Urban and Regional Planning Chair at FAU and fixture of Florida’s foundational environmental and growth management laws – we look to support the next the next generation of planning professionals while honoring DeGrove’s life of service.

There could be no more fitting memorial to John DeGrove’s influence on urban and regional planning than to support scholarships for the planners of tomorrow.
