The UCLA Faculty Women's Club proudly announces its 2008-2009 scholarship awards to eighteen exceptional UCLA students who were honored at the February 3, 2009 FWC Scholarship Dinner.
♦ The Gertrude T. Huberty Warren Memorial Scholarship
This scholarship was established in memory of Dr. Gertrude Huberty Warren,
FWC President 1949-50. Under her leadership, FWC created the first UCLA
Employee Directory that was later adopted as a UCLA publication. Dr. Huberty,
along with Dr. Donald MacKinnon, founded the first 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 an undergraduate or graduate student studying to enter the medical field
as researchers or physicians.
This year, the Gertrude T. Huberty Warren Memorial Scholarship was awarded to a graduate student pursuing a Ph.D. in the Medical Toxicology Program, researching the ability of boric acid to inhibit prostate cancer growth.
♦ The George and Sári Halász Memorial Scholarship
This scholarship was established 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 graduate student majoring in the humanities.
This year, the George and Sári Halasz Memorial Scholarship was awarded to a graduate student in World Arts and Culture with an interest in combining health education with the stimulation and excitement of performance to obtain enduring positive changes in health behavior, knowledge, and attitudes.

The Russell and Sallie O’Neill Graduate Scholarship was established by Sallie O’Neill in 2008, as a memorial to her husband Russell (1914-2007), who was Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering and Dean Emeritus of the UCLA Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science. He joined the engineering faculty in 1947 and served as Dean from 1974 to 1983. The scholarship is awarded to a graduate student in engineering and applied science.
