Fidelity Investments recently made a leadership gift to establish the Phillip Fulmer Masters Investment Learning Center Endowed Scholarship at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. The scholarship will benefit students majoring in finance and working in the Masters Investment Learning Center, a learning center within the college that enhances financial literacy among the university, the College of Business Administration, and the business community.
The gift was made in conjunction with Phillip Fulmer’s induction into the College Football Hall of Fame and presented at the Volunteer Leadership Luncheon on October 19 at the Knoxville Convention Center.
“Fidelity Investments is honored to establish the Phillip Fulmer Masters Investment Learning Center Endowed Scholarship,” says Joe Siragusa, vice president of Fidelity Investments. “Coach Fulmer’s greatness is being recognized with his induction into the College Football Hall of Fame, and, to further recognize this achievement, Fidelity Investments wanted to support the University of Tennessee College of Business Administration with this donation bearing Coach Fulmer’s name.”
Fulmer now works in the investment industry for BPV Capital Management, a Knoxville firm.
“I am certainly proud to have a scholarship bearing my name at my university,” says Fulmer. “I appreciate everyone involved with honor, especially the Fidelity Investments people who made it happen.”
Those wishing to honor Coach Fulmer by contributing to the newly established scholarship fund should contact the college’s Office of Development and Alumni Affairs at 865-974-6083.
