2014 University Women’s Club Scholarships
Jen Day Shaw, Ph.D., Associate Vice President for Student Affairs and Dean of Students
The University Women’s Club awards scholarships each spring to undergraduate juniors and seniors. These awards are named in honor of the wives of past University of Florida Presidents and distinguished administrators. The requirements for consideration include full time enrollment at the University of Florida, current junior or senior status, a minimum of a 3.6 GPA, and participation in campus and/or community activities. In addition, there are two awards specifically designated for undergraduate or graduate students with a disability that are presented from the Rita O’Connell Scholarship Foundation.
All of the monetary awards recognize scholarship, leadership, and service to the university and/or community. This year each award will be $1,000.
