FWC Scholarships Awarded 2005-2006
The UCLA Faculty Women's Club was proud to honor and award scholarships to eight exceptional UCLA students.
♦ The Gertrude T. Huberty Warren Memorial Scholarship
This scholarship was established in memory of Dr. Gertrude Huberty Warren, FWC President, 1949-1950. During her presidency, FWC created the first UCLA Employee Directory that was later adopted by UCLA. Gertrude was one of the founders of the UCLA Student Health Department where she served for more than 28 years as the Assistant Director and Professor of Clinical Medicine at the UCLA School of Medicine. The scholarship honors students studying to enter the medical field as researchers or physicians.
This scholarship was awarded for the first time this year to an entering freshman majoring in microbiology, immunology, and molecular genetics.
The George and Sári Halász Memorial Scholarship
This scholarship was given in memory of Sári Halász, FWC President 1998-1999. Her presidency was notable for establishing the first FWC Website. Sári remembered the FWC Scholarship Fund in her will and specified that a scholarship be awarded to a student majoring in the humanities
♦ Direct descendents of full-time UCLA academic
employees or members of FWC

Four undergraduate FWC Scholarships based on merit and need were
