FWC SCHOLARSHIPS

The FWC annually awards scholarships, including need- and merit-based undergraduate awards, as well as several merit-based awards to graduate students. FWC scholarships have grown from a single award of $25.00 in the 1920s to up to $1,000-$2,500 in 2007-2008.  Contributions from members and friends are deposited with the UCLA Foundation; the interest earned on these funds is used for the FWC scholarship awards.

We encourage members and friends to remember loved ones with a gift to the UCLA FWC Scholarship Program.  Memorial scholarships in a loved one's honor may be established with a minimum donation of $1,500. 

It is very easy to make a donation . . . just download the Scholarship Fund Donation Form and mail it with your contribution to FWC, P.O. Box 49363, Los Angeles, CA 90049-0363.  Please make check payable to UCLA Foundation/FWC Scholarship Fund.  If you have any questions, please e-mail FWC at uclafwc@ucla.edu with Scholarships as the subject.

Contributions are tax deductible to the extent of the law.

Please note

A new law was passed in 2006, called "Tax Free IRA Distribution to Charities." 

"Individuals aged 70 1/2 and older can distribute up to $100,000 of their IRA balance to charitable organizations in 2006 and 2007 without recognizing income and without taking a charitable deduction.  The distribution counts towards the required minimum distribution."

Establishing an endowed scholarship fund in honor or memory of someone would be a wonderful way to benefit a deserving student for many years to come.  Please consult your tax advisor to verify how this will affect your particular situation.

 
FWC appreciates and thanks you for your generous support.
