Florence L. Healy Scholarship

The Florence Healy Scholarship is open to students with research interests focused on women’s and gender studies. Eligible students will be sophomores, juniors, seniors, or graduate students who will be enrolled full-time in the 2020-21 school year and who have demonstrated financial need. To demonstrate financial need, students must have a completed FAFSA on file that shows a need level greater than 20%.

A minimum 3.0 GPA is required, and applicants should have completed at least one Women’s and Gender Studies course. A statement explaining your interest in women’s and gender studies is required as are two letters of recommendation. BE SURE TO LEAVE ENOUGH TIME BEFORE THE DEADLINE TO SUBMIT THE NAMES OF YOUR RECOMMENDERS SO THAT THEY CAN FILL OUT THE RECOMMENDATION FORM BEFORE THE DEADLINE.

In addition, all applicants must have completed the Academic/Career Goals section of the General Application. You may go back and edit your General Application if needed as long as it is open.

Preference will be given to students who are first-time applicants to this scholarship.
