Georgia Tech Faculty Women’s Club Scholarship Program

The GTFWC Scholarship Program is pleased to award scholarships to deserving GT undergraduates who have a parent or guardian employed by Georgia Tech. To date, 163 scholarships have been awarded–totaling $146,050 over 27 years!

In the earliest years, GTFWC members generated funds through yard sales and bake sales, and through these efforts established the GTFWC Endowment Fund. At first, scholarships in the amount of $1000 were awarded. Thanks to the continued generosity of club members, the award grew to $1500, then in 2017-18 to $2000. For the academic year 2019-20, up to six scholarships of $2000 each will once again be awarded. In August of 2020, the Foundation will transfer the scholarship funds to the GT Financial Aid Office for disbursement to recipients for GT expenses: tuition, fees, books, and/or room and board.
