Scholarship/ Fundraising

Since 1901, scholarships to UNL students have been a key component of the UNL Women’s Club.  Scholarship funds come from general donations, memorial and honorary donations, and fundraising activities.  Scholarships are based on academic achievement, financial need, extracurricular and community volunteer activities.  The University of Nebraska Foundation manages an endowed scholarship fund for the Women’s Club.

If interested in donating to the UNL Women’s Club scholarship fund, please send contributions to the UNL Women’s Club treasurer.

Quilt Fundraising


"Everything old is new again” -the Big Red Poppy quilt wall hanging is making its second showing-last raffled in 2001 and has been hanging in a cabin since then. Marge Young has kindly donated this beautiful wall hanging to supplement the UNLWC scholarship fund. Designed and appliqued by Gay Gallup and handstitched by Gay and members of the Piecemakers Interest Group, the quilt will be on display with opportunities to buy raffle tickets at UNLWC events held throughout the year. The winning ticket will be drawn at the Spring Luncheon. Need not be present to win.

This quilt (pictured below with the ladies) was raffled during the 2016-2017 year with all proceeds going to the UNLWC scholarship fund for current UNL students.
