The Marilu Adams Scholarship Fund
The stated purpose of the Marilu Adams Athletic Scholarship Fund is to provide a West Virginia University scholarship to a Florida student-athlete each year. The Marilu Adams Scholarship was established in 2000 after the sudden death of Marilu Adams, the Central Florida Chapter of the WVU Alumni Association’s long time Secretary.
The scholarship is currently endowed at a $50,000 level and a current balance exceeding $60,000. That allows the interest to provide the scholarship while the principal remains intact. Our Chapter wishes to continue to contribute to this fund annually and as tuition costs grow, we desire to be able to provide more assistance to our designee. The newly established goal for this fund is to reach an endowed amount of $100,000.
Personal contributions can be made directly to this scholarship fund through our PayPal Account or through the WVU Foundation, One Waterfront Place, 7th Floor, P.O. Box 1650, Morgantown, WV 26507. Personal checks should be made to the Marilu Adams Scholarship Fund, Account #3S643. There are no administrative fees deducted from these donations.
This year’s Marilu Adams’ Scholarship recipient is Sh’nia Gordon of the WVU Women’s Soccer team. Sh’nia is a senior from Ocklawaha, FL.Click Here to Donate to the Marilu Adams Scholarship Fund
NEW Central Florida WVU Student-Academic Scholarship Fund
Beginning in the Fall of 2017, we very enthusiastically kicked off a new Central Florida WVU Student-Academic Scholarship Fund opportunity. This new fund is being created to provide scholarships for non-athletic, academic achievements of Central Florida students attending West Virginia University.
During the past year, with the help of our local alumni and friends, we deposited $7,500 toward this fund. So far this year we are on course to exceed our initial $10,000 amount to allow us to begin awarding $1,000 scholarships in the 2019 Fall semester.
The current funding goal of this academic scholarship fund was to secure $13,000 within five years and an overall goal to reach a $25,000 endowment amount within ten years.
Personal contributions to this fund can be made directly through our PayPal Account or through the WVU Foundation, One Waterfront Place, 7th Floor, P.O. Box 1650, Morgantown, WV 26507. Personal check payments should be made to the Central Florida WVU Student-Academic Scholarship Fund, Account #2S592. There are no administrative fees deducted from these donations.Click Here to Donate to the Central Florida WVU Student-Academic Scholarship Fund
