Dr. Sergio F. Galeano Endowed Fund
Sergio Galeano (MSE ’64, PhD ’66) was an unlikely Gator. For 20 months in the 1960s — after failing to overthrown Fidel Castro — he was a Cuban political prisoner. Banishment to Miami changed his life. Galeano found his way to UF, earned master’s and doctorate degrees, and went on to become one of the world’s most respected environmental engineers.
Forever grateful to have a UF education, one of his last acts before his death at age 85 was to establish a fund to support UF environmental engineering students.
This fund supports a merit-based scholarship or fellowship for students in environmental engineering or for compensating undergraduate students selected by the College to serve as classroom and laboratory assistants to College faculty members in the Department of Environmental Engineering Sciences, to be conducted in accordance with University requirements for the employment of students.
