University Women’s Club Scholarships

University Women's Club Scholarships

Established in 1922, the University Women’s Club (UWC) is an organization comprised of University of Florida faculty, staff, and other women who actively support the mission and goals of the Club ( From its Endowment Fund, the Club has for many years awarded scholarships to deserving women and men in honor of the wives of past presidents of the University of Florida, as well as the wives of a few former distinguished campus leaders.

These women served the University during their husband’s careers at the University of Florida and their service has been recognized by the University Women’s Club through scholarships awarded in the spring.
