UFF Continues its Travel Scholarship Program: All UFF Members are Eligible

The USF Chapter of the UFF will award six $ 500 Travel Scholarships for next spring and summer.

All UFF USF members are eligible for one of six $ 500 travel scholarships to be randomly selected on December 2. Any member may submit a proposal - a proposal being a paragraph describing the professional activity for which the travel scholarship will be applied - to us by campus mail (UFF Membership Committee, 30238 USF Holly Drive) or by email; all proposals must be received by December 1. You may join UFF by December 3 and be eligible to apply. See the travel scholarship flyer.

Small print: Starting this term, a recipient of a travel award will not be eligible for another award for one year; this does not apply to awards prior to this term.

This initiative is part of our membership campaign. If you would like to become active in the UFF USF Membership Drive, contact the Membership Chair, Adrienne Berarducci.


While the Main Stream Media obsesses over the presidential race, many issues important to us - from education funding to local transportation infrastructure - depend more directly on state and local officials and representatives. So we ask all our members to bone up on the local elections and be sure to vote for the candidates of your choice. (There are also several referenda.)

To find out who and what is on your ballot, you can download a sample ballot from your county supervisor of elections:

From there, sources of information about races include:

In addition, the USF Chapter is trying to build a political committee that would not only help out during elections but build connections with - and educate - local politicians during the year. If you would be interested, please contact the Chapter Secretary.
