Our Gotham Gator Summer in the City Scholarship is open to all Gators interning in the New York City Metro Area during Summer 2018. Current University of Florida students who have already secured an internship in the NY area for the summer are encouraged to apply.

The Gotham Gators Scholarship Committee will review all applications and consider the applicant’s academic achievements while attending the University of Florida, professional promise, and commitment to community service. Consideration will be given for the additional financial burden on those who have unpaid internships, but all Gator interns are encouraged to apply. Applicants must be interning for college credit.

Gotham Gator Scholarship Program Fundraising

Gotham Gator scholarships are made possible with help from alumni and friends of the university. All of our club profits go to our scholarship funds, which have historically been raised through t-shirt sales, prize raffles at our viewing parties, award money from our successful intramural sports programs, all Gotham Gator events, and, of course, individual donations from alumni and friends.

We have embarked on a mission to raise enough money to endow a scholarship with the university in the name of the Gotham Gators. This would create a program that would serve to support New York-area high school students with exemplary academic and community service records to attend the University of Florida for many years to come.

We have set an ambitious fundraising goal of $30,000 and ask for your generous support to help us meet this goal. So please support us however you can, and remember, everyone can afford at least 2 Bits!
