The TaxSlayer Gator Bowl’s mission is to provide Northeast Florida with the very best in college athletics and related activities in order to maximize positive impact on the area’s economy, national image and community pride. Throughout their generosity, TaxSlayer is offering the Gator Bowl Charities Award of Excellence Scholarship.
