2017 University Women’s Club Undergraduate Scholarships
Susan Robell, University Women’s Club Scholarship Chair
Each year the University Women’s Club awards up to 17 scholarships in the amount of $1,000 to junior or senior undergraduate men and women. Applicants must have a minimum GPA of 3.6 and have demonstrated service to the university and/or community. These awards are given in honor of Former First Ladies of UF.
There are some designated areas of interest for a few of the first ladies such as Art/ Art History, Elementary/Early Childhood Education, Music, Science and Theatre and Dance. The general application form and requirements can be found at https://www.dso.ufl.edu/home/scholarships/uwc.
The application DEADLINE is February 27, 2017.
The Rita O’Connell Scholarship is also selected by the UWC. These awards ($1,000) are given to students who have achieved success as students while persevering through physical or cognitive disabilities. There aren’t specific GPA requirements, but the application process must be followed.
We welcome assistance in publicizing these awards to able candidates!
