The UCLA Faculty Women's Club proudly announces its 2011-2012 scholarship awards to eight exceptional UCLA students—scholarships made possible by generous donations from its members and many friends. The scholars were honored at the FWC Scholarship Dinner at the UCLA Faculty Center on February 7, 2012.

Graduate Scholarships

♦  Russell and Sallie O’Neill Graduate Scholarship in Engineering and Applied Science

                Sallie O’Neill established this scholarship in 2008 as a tribute to her husband Russell (1914-2007), 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 student in engineering and applied science.

                This year, this scholarship was awarded to a PhD candidate in Biomedical Engineering, studying fracture mechanics, implantation and fixation devices, and bone loss.

♦  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 students planning medical careers, either as physicians or researchers.    

                This year, this scholarship was awarded to a graduate student in Molecular Toxicology, focusing on molecular carcinogenesis with the goal of bridging the gap between scientific research and policy decisions that impact healthcare.
