Fidelity Investments Contributes to UT Scholarship in Honor of Phillip Fulmer

November 13, 2013

KNOXVILLE—Fidelity Investments has made a leadership gift to grow the Phillip Fulmer Masters Investment Learning Center Endowed Scholarship at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. The company originally established the scholarship endowment one year ago.

The scholarship endowment will benefit students majoring in finance and working in the Masters Investment Learning Center, which is housed in the UT College of Business Administration. The center enhances financial literacy among the university, the college and the business community.

The gift was presented at the college’s homecoming barbeque on Nov. 9. Over 150 alumni and friends attended the event, held prior to the noon football game.

“I am certainly proud to have a scholarship endowment bearing my name at my university,” Fulmer said. “I appreciate everyone involved with honor, especially the Fidelity Investments people who made it happen.”
