This endowment supports graduate scholarships in the UF/IFAS College of Agricultural and Life Sciences. The recipient must have a minimum 3.5 GPA. One award shall be called the Agricultural Women’s Club Scholarship and a second award shall be called the Dee Ann Connor Scholarship.
The Agricultural Women’s Club’s primary purpose is to provide scholarships to agricultural students and promote social interaction among working and retired UF/IFAS faculty and their families. Mrs. Dee Ann Connor has served dutifully as a longtime officer of the club. She joined the UF/IFAS community in 1991 when her husband, Larry, was appointed the Dean of the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences. Under her leadership, the club continued to provide annual scholarships to graduate students before establishing an endowment in CALS to support these awards in perpetuity.
