The 100 Years of Women Scholarship Fund was established in 1992 to honor a current matriculated UConn student or a high school senior planning to enroll in the University of Connecticut who, as a role model or advocate, has advanced the role and contributions of women in society. Applicants must be enrolled at least half-time for the entire Fall 2022/Spring 2023 academic year.
The mission of the Women’s Center is to educate, advocate, and provide support services for the achievement of women’s equity at the university and within the community at large. More specifically, we promote an anti-racist feminist perspective which includes an analysis of the intersectionality between various forms of oppression; challenges the power structure/status quo that reinforces inequality based on race and gender simultaneously; and foregrounds the understanding of how racial discrimination impacts the analysis of gender discrimination.
To apply, the applicant must complete and submit an application form, including an unofficial transcript, resume or curriculum vitae, and two letters of recommendation from individuals who can comment on their commitment and service to women’s issues. Information and application can be found HERE.
