Scholarships

LONE STAR GATOR CLUB® SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM

One of our goals is to support the academic goals of students from Central Texas attending the University of Florida. We do this each year by funding partial 1-year scholarships.


Club fundraising in the past decade was so successful that the we were able to open an endowed scholarship through the University of Florida Foundation, which we named in honor of late longtime Lone Star Gator Club member and officer, Brad Bradford. We supplement the endowment each year through local efforts like our Pledge For Points fundraiser and raffles.


APPLY FOR THE SCHOLARSHIP

UF provides the club with a list of the accepted students every spring. We contact them directly with detials on how to apply.


This year, the Lone Star Gator Club® provided scholarships of $1500 each to three deserving students.
