Georgia Tech Faculty Women’s Club Scholarship Program
The GTFWC Scholarship Program is pleased to award scholarships to deserving GT undergraduates who have a parent or guardian employed by Georgia Tech – the children of our Georgia Tech “family”.
To date, 163 scholarships have been awarded–totaling $146,050 over 27 years!
In the earliest years, GTFWC members generated funds through yard sales and bake sales, and through these efforts established the GTFWC Endowment Fund. At first, scholarships in the amount of $1000 were awarded. Thanks to the continued generosity of club members, the award grew to $1500, then in 2017-18 to $2000. For the academic year 2019-20, up to five scholarships of $2000 each will once again be awarded. In August of 2019, the Foundation will transfer the scholarship funds to the GT Financial Aid Office for disbursement to recipients for GT expenses: tuition, fees, books, and/or room and board.
Guidelines for Selection of Recipients:
1. The Scholarship Committee will award up to five qualified students scholarships of $2000 each for the 2019-20 academic year. Applicants must be a current GT undergraduate student and have completed at least one full semester at GT.
