Wilma Holladay Endowed Scholarship Fund for Handicapped Students


Student Disability Resource Ct D01178


Undergraduate Student Support

History and Purpose:

The Wilma C. Holladay Endowed Scholarship for Handicapped Students was created in 1989 to honor the memory of Mrs. Holladay, who served effectively and with exemplary commitment as assistant registrar at UCR for 20 years. Mrs. Holladay, a graduate of UC Berkeley, would have been a participant in a program similar to UCR's re-entry program had one been in existence at that time. Mrs. Holladay was described as a "quiet activist" on access issues for disabled people, herself having contracted polio as a child. This award is designated to benefit handicapped undergraduate Re-entry students.

Selection and Guidelines:

Recipient must be a California resident, have achieved a GPA of 3.0, and demonstrate financial need. Major can be in any field; candidate may be any age, race, or sex. If at some time in the future there is no re-entry student applicant who meets the criteria set forward, a currently enrolled handicapped student may be considered. Scholarship is for one academic period (one year), but may be awarded for successive years if acceptable progress is made toward the degree. Administration of the fund is by Disabled Student Services Selection Committee, which includes a representative from Disabled Student Services, Financial Aid, and Re-entry Student Services.
