University Women's Club Scholarships

Established in 1922, the University Women's Club is an organization comprised of faculty and staff and wives of faculty and staff of the University of Florida, and of women who actively support the mission and goals of the Club. Each spring, the University Women's Club awards $1,000 scholarships to deserving students in honor of the wives of past presidents of the University of Florida as well as wives of distinguished campus leaders. Each of these ladies has served the University during her husband's career at the University of Florida, and their service is being recognized by the University Women's Club through the Scholarship Awards.

Students only need to submit one application to be considered for all of the awards.

Applications are due by March 3, 2017 at 4:30 p.m., in the Dean of Students Office, 202 Peabody Hall.
