Awarding scholarships since 1942, The GFWC Miami Springs Woman's Club Scholarship Fund provides financial support for students to help them improve their college or vocational/trade experience.  We're not just helping fund their education; we are helping these students transform their lives.

 

These scholarships are a community effort because the number of scholarships and the amount given depends on the generosity of our donors (all donations are tax-deductible) and the amount of money raised by our club through fundraising events.

 

The Scholarship Fund consists of the Lena Pearl Wheeler Nursing Scholarship, the English | Fine Arts High School Scholarship, the Vocational Scholarship, and the Jennifer Ator Scholarship, funded by the Ator Family.

Our nursing scholarship is named in honor of Lena Pearl Wheeler, a founding MSWC member and widow of Glenn Curtiss, our city's founder. Lena was known for her immense generosity and involvement in the community. To support the Miami Springs Woman's Club, she donated the land to build the Clubhouse in memory of her mother, Mrs. Jennie Potter Neff, and her late husband's mother, Mrs. Lua Andrews Curtiss Adams. Every year an eligible college-enrolled nursing student is awarded this scholarship.
