UF Alumni Association Board of Directors Florida Opportunity Scholars Endowment
This fund was established in 2012 by a group of donors to support the Florida Opportunity Scholars Program at the University of Florida.
The UF Alumni Association was organized and chartered in 1906 by the first group of graduates from the Gainesville campus. Today, alumni on record total over 370,000. We have alumni in every state and in 130 foreign countries. The Alumni Association is responsible for a network of nearly 100 Gator Clubs in Florida, across the U.S. and internationally. These clubs are composed of alumni and friends who represent UF in their community.
Having a number of locations, Gator Clubs® and Affiliate groups promote diversity, thus encouraging the spirit of the Gator Nation®. Gator Clubs® host a multitude of social and athletic functions, sponsor educational and professional seminars, provide scholarship opportunities, design community service projects and foster young alumni programming. Membership is open to all alumni, parents, friends and students of the University.
The UF Alumni Association-chartered Gator Clubs® and Affiliate groups sponsor scholarships for students attending UF from all over Florida, as well as many other parts of the country. Gator Club® scholarships are awarded based upon criteria established by each Gator Club® or group including but not limited to academic merit, school and community involvement.
