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, Scholarships
and Awards. This 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
instances the Committee has been given the authority to make awards without con-
sulting 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 potential 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, Scholarships
and Awards at the University of Florida, Gainesville.

Murphree Engineering Loan Fund.-On September 16, 1929, a friend of our late
President, Dr. A. A. Murphree, gave to the Engineering College $500 to be used as a
revolving loan fund. This fund was to be used in cases of emergency when, on account
of financial difficulties, worthy students would be kept from graduating unless they
could receive some assistance. Only in special cases are these loans made to members
of the junior class. Applications for loans from this fund should be made to the Dean
of the College of Engineering, University of Florida, Gainesville.
Pharmacy Loan Fund.-The Duval County Ladies' Auxiliary of the Florida State
Pharmaceutical Association has established a short-term loan fund of $200 for the use
of students in the College of Pharmacy. These loans are made in amounts not exceed-
ing $50 and for periods not exceeding 90 days. Further information may be obtained
from Mrs. P. A. Foote, 729 South Seventh Street, Gainesville, Florida.
P. E. 0. Educational Loan Fund.-This loan fund is available to women students
at the University of Florida. Loans may be secured in amounts of $400, maximum for
one year, or $800.00, maximum for two years. Applications should be made to the Dean
of Women, University of Florida, from whom additional information may be obtained.
Phi Kappa Phi Loan Fund.-The Florida chapter of Phi Kappa Phi, national
honorary scholastic society, has established a $250 annual loan fund for Phi Kappa
Phi members. Loans will be made principally to students intending to pursue graduate
work. Application should be made to Professor W. A. Gager, Phi Kappa Phi Loan
Fund, University of Florida, Gainesville.
Pickett and Hatcher Educational Fund.-The Pickett and Hatcher Educational
Fund was created by the late Claud Adkins Hatcher, of Columbus, Georgia, founder of
the NEHI Corporation and its predecessors. In his will, Mr. Hatcher set aside a sub-
stantial sum to assist worthy students to obtain a college education. Inquiries concerning







loans from this fund should be addressed to Pickett and Hatcher Educational Fund,
P. 0. Box 1233, Columbus, Georgia.
Rotary Loan Fund.-The Rotarians of Florida have set aside a considerable sum
of money to be used in making loans to worthy boys or girls who would not otherwise
be able to attend college. The maximum loan is $300 per year. These loans are not
available to freshmen. Applications for these loans should be made to the President of
the Rotary Club of the city from which the student registers, or to Mr. K. H. Graham,
Secretary-Treasurer, Florida Educational Loan Corporation, University of Florida,
Gainesville.
The Leo S. Rowe Pan American Fund.-Through the generosity of Dr. Leo S.
Rowe, the late Director General of the Pan American Union, a revolving loan fund was
created to render supplementary assistance to deserving Latin American Students who
wish to pursue studies or investigations in the universities and colleges of the United
States.
The Fund thus created through his will is known as the Leo. S. Rowe Pan Ameri-
can Fund. It is administered through a Permanent Committee, designated by the Coun-
cil of the Organization of American States.
The benefits of the fund are extended in the form of loans to students in the fol-
lowing categories:
1. Latin American students who, having completed their technical or professional
studies, wish to come to the United States to pursue advanced studies or engage in
special research or investigations of a technical or scientific nature.
2. Latin American students who are already pursuing studies or research in the
United States, and who require additional assistance to enable them to complete their
work or to meet an emergency.
3. Latin American students who are the recipients of scholarships for study in the
universities or colleges of the United States, or have resources of their own to undertake
such studies, but who may require additional assistance to enable them to meet their
needs.
The Permanent Committee has particularly stressed the importance that these loans
be granted to applicants whose studies have a direct bearing on the economic, social
and cultural development of the Latin American countries. Emphasis has also been
placed on the fact that all applicants must complete their studies, leading to a degree,
within the maximum period of two years. The maximum obtainable for students already
in the United States is $500 per year. The loans bear no interest and must be repaid
within five years after the completion of the purpose for which they were granted.
All inquiries should be addressed to the Secretariat of the Leo S. Rowe Pan
American Fund, Pan American Union, Washington 6, D. C.
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.
