The Feminist Scholarship Fund, Inc. was created in 1995 by a generous donation to the Palm Beach County chapter of NOW; 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 (Florida Atlantic University).
In October 2017 the fund merged with the FAU Foundation as the Feminist Fund after having supported over one hundred students in their studies.
The Feminist Fund, through its support of The Center for Women, Gender & Sexuality Studies, is supporting students, faculty and programs. It is recognized as one of the most outstanding educational centers of its kind in the nation.
Presently Sheila Jaffe, chapter co-president, and Prof. Clarence Brooks, a founding member of the local NOW chapter, are Advisory Council members of FAU.edu/WGSS
