The UFIC is pleased to announce a second Scarborough Agency Award.  The Scarborough Agency has provided an insurance option for international students for over 19 years.  The agency established this award to show appreciation for the outstanding service provided by the International Student Services staff. The award will be given in honor of Mrs. Maud Fraser, who provided outstanding service to international students for 13 years; Mrs. Fraser retired June 30, 2010.

The Scarborough-Maud Fraser Scholarship will be given to one international student enrolled in a Master’s or Ph.D. program in the amount of $1,000.00.

The nominees should meet the following criteria:

  • Currently enrolled full-time in a Masters or Ph.D. program

  • Holds at least a 3.0 G.P.A.

  • Exhibits outstanding service/contributions to their department/UF or broader community

Upon meeting the above criteria you may nominate yourself or another student by submitting the following:

  • An essay of 500-800 words answering the questions: What have you done in UF and Gainesville and how have these experiences enhance your degree? How has helping others at UF and in Gainesville influenced your UF experience?
  • Submit 3 letters of references from sources, other than family or friends, supporting information in the essay.

A selection committee appointed by the University of Florida International Center will rank and choose the submitted nominees.
