About the DC Gator Club Scholarships:
The DC Gator Club awards scholarships to eligible University of Florida (UF) students throughout the year. There are two types of scholarships offered:
(1) The J. Richard Sewell Scholarship for Interns
SUMMER 2017 - The DC Gator Club is now accepting applications for a limited number of scholarships of $1,000 each for University of Florida students with an internship in the greater Washington, DC area for the summer semester. This scholarship is made possible by a combination of DC Gator Club general funds and a generous endowment established by the DC Gator Club to support students participating in internships in Washington DC, in honor of J. Richard Sewell, a former DC Gator Club president.
Undergraduate and graduate students who are enrolled for internship credit and will be spending the semester in the area are welcome to apply. Preference is given to those with unpaid internships and demonstrated financial need. A scholarship will be awarded to the top students who demonstrate exceptional academic achievement as well as professional promise and a commitment to the Gator Nation. Applications are due no later than April 23, 2017. To apply, click on the APPLY NOW button below, and submit a resume and unofficial transcript to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Application Due Date: April 23, 2017
(2) The DC Hometown Scholarship (new in 2016)
