To Prospective Donors to Scholarship and Loan Funds of the
University of Florida

T HERE is a constant and increasing demand for all types of student aid
at the University of Florida. Many young people are graduating
from high school who are capable of doing high grade college work, but
who are unable to finance all of the costs of college training. A scholar-
ship that would take care of part of the expenses, room, board, registration,
would suffice to supplement the resources they have or their parents are
able to provide. A loan that could be paid back after graduation in many
instances would enable a student who has completed two or three years'
work to continue until graduation. The Student Aid Counselor in the
Office of Student Personnel is available for information to those who are
interested in making any kind of bequests or grants.



Introduction

T HIs booklet describes the various types of student aid at the University
of Florida, including scholarships, loan funds, student employment,
fellowships, prizes and other awards. It is published for the information
of students who may be eligible for some form of aid and recognition by
alumni and friends and to encourage those who may be interested in estab-
lishing additional student aid funds at the University. This publication
describes not only those awards which the University has on deposit, but
a number in which the student is selected by the donor and administered
through the University Student Aid program. Periodic reports are given
to donors of scholarships of the progress the student is making at the
University.
The Office of Student Personnel administers the program of scholarships,
grants, and student aid funds. Inquiries concerning these funds should
be addressed to The Dean of Student Personnel, University of Florida,
Gainesville, Florida.

Student Aid


Student Employment:
E VERY effort is made to aid quali-
fied students in obtaining part-
time employment. Opportunities are
limited; consequently the number of
part-time jobs available does not ap-
proach the number of applicants
seeking these jobs. Every attempt is
made to place students in work that
utilizes their training and experience.
Each student who is employed by
the University must have an honor
point average of C for the semester
or term immediately preceding his
employment. The average rate of
pay per hour is between 50 and 75
cents; the average earnings per
month are about $40.
Student employment is directed by
the Comm:ttee on Student Aid, Schol-
arships and Awards, with the Assist-
ant Dean of Men administering the
program. All applications for work

Campus Club.


should be made prior to the opening
of the semester in which employment
is desired. Applications for work,
however, may be filed at any time.
Inquiries should be addressed to:
Assistant Dean of Men, University of
Florida, Gainesville, Florida.

Scholarships:
The University of Florida does not
have large sums of money available
for cash scholarships. Many of the
scholarships available to students are
awarded directly by the donors, and
administered through the Business
Office of the University and the Com-
mittee on Student Aid, Scholarships
and Awards; however, there are a
number of scholarships awarded and
administered by the Committee on
Student Aid, Scholarships and
Awards. The Committee collects all
information relative to the basis of
award, the value, and other pertinent
facts pertaining to scholarships. The
Committee also collects information
on the applicants and supplies this
information to donors. In some in-
stances the Committee has been given
the authority to make awards without
consulting donors.
The following definition of terms
are recognized by the University of
Florida: "Scholarship" is an out-
right payment of money by the Uni-
versity or the donor to a student who
has been selected for such aid by the
Committee on Student Aid or by the
donor on the basis of one or more
of the following criteria:
(a) Scholarship ability,
(b) Character,
(c) Financial need.
Too, there are more specific cri-
teria which may be stated by the
donor of scholarship funds. The
term "scholarship" may also be used
to designate stipends, usually of









lesser amounts than a fellowship, that
are paid to graduate students. Be-
cause of the limited amount of schol-
arship funds students who have dem-
onstrated scholarship ability and
have evidence of need are given pref-
erence over entering students.
While scholarship as evidenced by
academic attainment is an important
feature in making awards, it is by no
means the only consideration. The
student's potential capacity to profit
by college training and to make rea-
sonable returns to society are impor-
tant considerations in making all
awards.
In addition to the opportunities for
scholarship awards at the University,
prospective students are urged to con-
sult the resources in their home com-
munities. Many civic clubs and com-
munity organizations are interested
in providing means whereby students
may attend college when they are
convinced the investment will be
worth while.
Unless otherwise specified, applica-
tions, for scholarships listed below


should be made to the Dean of Men
who is Chairman of the Committee on
Student Aid, Scholarships and
Awards at the University of Florida,
Cainesville.

ministered by the Committee
on Student Aid, Scholarships and
Awards unless otherwise provided for
by the terms and conditions laid
down by the donors of loan fund.
The several loan funds available
at the University of Florida may be
divided into two classes: (1) The
long-term loan fund which allows the
student to complete his college edu-
cation and repay the loan after gradu-
ation in installments over a period
of years; and (2) the short-term
emergency loan which aims to meet
the needs of unforeseen emergencies
that arise in the financing of college
expenses. As a rule, the short-term
loans are for small amounts and are
repayable within the semester.

Applications:
Unless otherwise specified, appli-
cation for loan funds should be made
to the Dean of Men, who is Chairman
of the Committee on Student Aid,
Scholarships and Awards, University
of Florida, Gainesville. A personal
appearance of the applicant is re-
quired before final consideration can
be given.

Eligibility for Loans:
No student may borrow from the
University of Florida loan funds who
does not have a C average for the
entire time he has been at the Uni-
versity. Where there are extenuating
circumstances, exception to this rule
may be made. Before a loan will
be granted the Committee must be
thoroughly convinced of the appli-
cant's real need for assistance and
it will be considered grounds for
refusal of the application if it is
found that a loan is desired as a
mere matter of convenience to avoid


earnest effort on the part of the ap-
plicant to obtain the necessary money
from other sources.

Amount of Loans:
Long-term loans shall be limited
to $500 to any one applicant. Not
more than $250 may be secured dur-
ing any one semester. Short-term
loans are for small amounts within
a maximum of $50.

Responsibility:
Each student making a loan shall
sign a note for the full amount of
the loan. The applicant for long-
term loans shall be required to fur-
nish an acceptable endorser.
Long-Term Loans:
Loans shall be payable in a lump
sum or in installments of not less
than 10% per month, which pay-
ments shall include interest and prin-
cipal. The loan, or the first payment,
shall be due not later than three
months after graduation or the date
of leaving college if the borrower
does not graduate. Exceptions to
this may be made in special cases.
Short-Term Loans:
Short-term loans (Tolbert Loans)
are available in cases of emergency.
These loans may not exceed $50 to
any one applicant and must be repaid
within 90 days or by the end of the
semester in which the loan is made.
Interest:
Short-term notes have a standard
application fee of 2%. This is in lieu
of interest. Interest rates on loan
funds vary according to terms of the
donor, but 5% is the usual rate. All
interest and fees become part of the
respective loan funds.










Loan Renewals:
Loan renewals requested by stu-
dents in residence shall be made to
the Chairman of the Committee on
Student Ai d, Scholarships and
Awards. Loan renewals requested by
students no longer in residence shall

are the same as application rates for
the respective funds.
Penalties for Delinquencies:
If a loan is due before the end
of the semester and is not paid or
renewed, the student may not receive
credit for the semester's work, will
not be issued a transcript, and may
not reregister until payment or re-
newal is made. This delinquency shall
be posted on the student's personal
record. If a loan is due before the
beginning of a semester and is not
paid or renewed, the student will not
be allowed to register, or will be
dropped if he has already registered.
Failure to make proper settlement or
arrange for renewal of a note by the
date due will result in a delinquency
fee of 2% of the unpaid principal.
