The Feminist Scholarship Fund, Inc. was created in 1995 by a generous donation to the Palm Beach County chapter of NOW, the National Organization for Women. Regina Fine remembered NOW in her will and a new scholarship for feminist students was created. Board members Tori Hodge, Dr. Maria Ladino Sturchler and Penny Darling are past scholarship recipients and graduates of FAU.
According to a board member, “Since 1995, the Feminist Scholarship fund has awarded over one hundred scholarships to deserving students. As part of the gift, several of them will join the WGSS Advisory Council, which was founded to create community awareness about the Center and to support the center through community events and fundraising.”
