Established in 1922, the University Women’s Club is an organization comprised of University of Florida faculty, staff and other women who actively support the mission and goals of the Club. (www.universitywomensclub.ufl.edu) Each spring, the University Women’s Club awards $1,000 scholarships to deserving undergraduate students, in honor of the wives of past presidents of the University of Florida, as well as wives of a few former distinguished campus leaders. These women have served the University during their husbands’ careers at the University of Florida, and their service is being recognized by the University Women’s Club through the Scholarship Awards. These awards are for women and men and a description of each award is listed at the end of the application form.
