Applications and all required supporting documents received after the deadline will not be considered.

The UKWC Scholarship Committee will review the applications for final selection before the end of the spring semester. Finalists will attend a personal interview with the committee. The decisions of the UK Woman’s Club are final following the selection process.

Since 1973, the UKWC Aid Fund has provided 309 undergraduate scholarships totaling $860,617. Additionally, the UKWC entered into a RCTF endowment agreement with UK in 2006 that has awarded some 64 graduate fellowships totaling approximately $131,000.

The UKWC has funded many activities benefitting UK students since it was founded in 1909. The club looks forward to assisting more UK students with their academics in 2022-2023.

With a rich tradition of more than 100 years of service, the UKWC provides a welcoming and enriching environment for all women to be part of a group committed to supporting the campus and its students. UKWC scholarship and fellowship programs provide nearly $40,000 annually to students pursuing undergraduate and graduate degrees. In addition, UKWC partners with other UK organizations and programs to provide needed services to the student body.

The University of Kentucky is increasingly the first choice for students, faculty and staff to pursue their passions and their professional goals. In the last two years, Forbes has named UK among the best employers for diversity, and INSIGHT into Diversity recognized us as a Diversity Champion four years running. UK is ranked among the top 30 campuses in the nation for LGBTQ* inclusion and safety. UK has been judged a “Great College to Work for" three years in a row, and UK is among only 22 universities in the country on Forbes' list of "America's Best Employers."  We are ranked among the top 10 percent of public institutions for research expenditures — a tangible symbol of our breadth and depth as a university focused on discovery that changes lives and communities. And our patients know and appreciate the fact that UK HealthCare has been named the state’s top hospital for five straight years. Accolades and honors are great. But they are more important for what they represent: the idea that creating a community of belonging and commitment to excellence is how we honor our mission to be not simply the University of Kentucky, but the University for Kentucky.
