Donald and Barbara Mozley Scholarship

The Donald and Barbara Mozley Scholarship provides financial support for students pursuing an engineering degree at an ABET-accredited college or university.

Don Mozley was a renowned broadcast journalist who spent 62 years working for CBS Radio and KCBS/74 in San Francisco. Hired by CBS in 1942, Don covered such historic events as WWII, the atomic bomb tests at Bikini the presidential campaigns of Nixon and Eisenhower, and the Senate race of Robert Taft.

He received the Excellence in Journalism Award from the Society of Professional Journalists' Northern California Chapter in recognition of his distinguished broadcasting career.

In addition to news, Don's passion was cars and he spent much of his career covering automotive history in his features, "California Driver" and "Don Mozley's Auto Test".

It is in the spirit of Don's love for cars that he established the Donald and Barbara Mozley Scholarship to support students pursuing degrees in engineering.
