The WVU Alumni of Central Florida Marilu Adams Scholarship Fund is “Fully Funded”
Our chapter gives net proceeds from memberships, 50-50 drawing, and donations to the Marilu Adams Scholarship Fund and the Central Florida WVU Student-Academic Scholarship Fund annually. The stated purpose of the fund is to provide a West Virginia University scholarship to a Florida student-athlete each year. Our scholarship is now “fully funded” which means that we have reached a level ($50,000+) that allows the interest to provide the scholarship while the principal remains intact. Your organization continues to contribute to this fund (typically $2000 annually) and as tuition costs grow, we are able to provide more assistance to our designee.
Our scholarship this year went to Kaitlin Sullivan from Nokomis, FL, an outstanding member of the Mountaineer Rowing Team.
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.
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. There are no administrative fees deducted from these donations.Click Here to Donate to the Marilu Adams Scholarship Fund
