STUDENT AID
STUDENT EMPLOYMENT

Every effort is made to aid qualified students in obtaining part-time employment.
Opportunities are limited; consequently the number of part-time jobs available does
not approach 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 Committee on Student Aid, Scholarships
and Awards, with the Assistant Dean of Men administering the program. All applica-
tions for work 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
Committee on Student Aid, Scholarships and Awards; however, there are a number
of scholarships awarded and administered by the Committee on Student Aid, Scholar-
ships and Awards. The Committee collects all information relative to the basis of
award, the value, and other pertinent facts pertaining to scholarships. The Com-
mittee also collects information on the applicants and supplies this information to
donors. In some instances the Committee has been given the authority to make
awards without consulting donors.
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 poten-
tial capacity to profit by college training and to make reasonable returns to society
are important considerations in making all awards.
In addition to the opportunities for scholarship awards at the University,
prospective students are urged to consult the resources 'in their home communities.
Many civic clubs and community organizations are interested in providing means
whereby students may attend college when they are convinced the investment will
be worth while.
Unless otherwise specified, applications for scholarships listed below should be
made to the Dean of Men who is Chairman of the Committee on Student Aid, Scholar-
ships and Awards at the University of Florida, Gainesville.

college education and repay the loan after graduation in installments over a period of
years; and (2) the short-term emergency loan which aims to meet the needs of un-
foreseen 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, application for loan funds should be made to the
Dean of Men, who is Chairman of the Committee on Student Aid, Scholarships and

have a "C" average for the entire time he has been at the University. 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 applicant'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 applicant to obtain the necessary money from other sources.

AMOUNT OF LOANS
Long-term loans shall be limited to $500.00 to any one applicant. Not more than
$250.00 may be secured during any one semester. Short-term loans are for small amounts
within a maximum of $50.00.

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 furnish 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 payments shall include interest and principal. The loan, or the first pay-
ment, 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 $50.00 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

rate. All interest and fees become part of the respective loan funds.

LOAN RENEWALS
Loan renewals requested by students in residence shall be made to the Chairman
of the Committee on Student Aid, Scholarships and Awards. Loan renewals requested








by students no longer in residence shall be made to the custodian of accounts in the

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 renewal 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

The John G. and Fannie F. Ruge Memorial Scholarship and Loan Fund.-This
scholarship and loan fund was made available through the will of the late John G. and
Fannie F. Ruge of Panama City who stated in the will that "there is no greater privilege
in this world than to give young men and women the means of intellectual growth." A
limited amount of the fund has been set up for scholarships; the remainder is operated
as a loan fund. "Such loans," he stated, "are to be made on the condition that the
recipient refund the money thus loaned as soon as he or she may reasonably be able to
earn it after providing for their livelihood in an economical manner." These loans, if
not repaid, will not only manifest ingratitude to those individuals who made them possible,
but will work gross injury to the John G. and Fannie F. Ruge Loan Fund.
The applicant must be a bona fide full time student of the University of Florida
and must have completed at least thirty hours of college work with a scholastic average








of C or better. The maximum loan granted to any one student during the year is $500,
or a total of $1,000 while in school. Applications for both scholarships and loans should
be made to the Office of the Dean of Men.
Sarasota City Panhellenic Loan Fund.-The Sarasota City Panhellenic Association
has a limited amount of funds available for scholarship loans to successful college women
applicants who are graduates of the public schools of Sarasota. Applicants must be
members of the senior class of a college at the time the loan is received and have a
scholastic rating equivalent to that required for graduation by the college attended. Ap-
plicants who receive loans will be required to sign a note for the amount received.
Interest shall be charged from the time of graduation at one percent less than the
current rate of local banks at the time the loan is made. Applications should be ad-
dressed to Mrs. C. S. Keve, 624 Hillview, Harbor Acres, Sarasota, Florida.
The Sherrill Loan Fund.-The Sherrill Loan fund was initiated by Mr. J. H.
Sherrill of Pensacola, Florida. Mr. Sherrill interested himself in a number of students

As these loans were repaid, he established the Sherrill Loan Fund at the University
of Florida. Applications should be made to the Chairman of the Committee on Student
Aid, Dean of Men's Office.
