The University of Florida Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT)
Concerns Committee announces its Third Annual Awards competition.
Two awards, each in the amount of $500, will be given out:
one to a UF undergraduate student and one to a UF graduate student.
Applicants must demonstrate excellence in either service or research.
Service: Successful applicants must demonstrate exemplary service to the UF
or larger Gainesville community on behalf of
lesbian/gay/bisexual/transgender peoples. Such service may include efforts
to eliminate homophobia, promote LGBT causes, or create safe spaces and
activities for LGBT individuals.
Research: Successful applicants must have performed research within the
last year or have completed a proposal to conduct research within the next
year that focuses on a lesbian/gay/bisexual/transgender topic or otherwise
engages LGBT concerns.
Applicants should submit the following: one copy of UF transcript (need
not be official but must be recent); a brief (3-5 pages) statement of
purpose pertaining to service or research; two letters of recommendation
from individuals (preferably one from a faculty mentor) who can attest to
quality of service or research. Members of the awards subcommittee are not
eligible to provide letters of recommendation.
Applications must include a cover page with the following information:
the category (service or research) in which the applicant wishes to be
considered; the applicant's full name, complete local mailing address,
local telephone number, e-mail address, UF ID number, major and year at UF;
and the name of the applicant's advisor. (Qualified students may apply in
both categories, provided separate applications are submitted; the same
letters of recommendation may be used, however, if both service and
research accomplishments are addressed.)
APPLICATIONS MUST BE SUBMITTED BY FRIDAY, MARCH 7, 2003, TO:
Amanda Wolfe, Associate Director, Center for Latin American Studies, PO Box
University of Florida, Gainesville, FL 32611.
