University Women’s Club Offers Scholarship to Non-Traditional Women Students
March 6, 2012 — The deadline is Monday, March 19, to apply for the University Women's Club scholarship for non-traditional women students.
The scholarship ranges from $500 to $2,000 for an academic year, depending on the past year's fundraising results. It is open to full- or part-time students pursuing either undergraduate or graduate studies.
Applicants must be female and 25 years old by Sept.1, 2012. Graduate students must be at least 30 years old by Sept. 1, 2012.
The recipient is selected based on the application, financial need and a personal statement.
The University Women's Club will recognize the scholarship recipient at a dinner in the fall that is hosted by Jacque Buchanan, wife of UW President Tom Buchanan.
The scholarship recipients for the 2011-2012 academic year were Mikia Carter and Kristine Koss, both non-traditional students who are raising children while pursuing their bachelor's degrees.
The University Women's Club was founded in 1912 by Mrs. Clyde A. Duniway, wife of the university's ninth president. The club's mission is to promote social interaction among members, welcome women new to Laramie and to provide assistance to the University of Wyoming and the surrounding area. Any woman in the community is welcome to join. Annual dues cost $20, a portion of which goes toward funding the scholarship.
