empower future female leaders

During the 2019-20 academic year, nearly 9,000 students in the USF System applied for scholarships through the Women in Leadership & Philanthropy (WLP) program. WLP was pleased to provide a record 201 awards to a diverse group of talented women (the majority who are first generation college students with significant demonstrated financial need). With your help, we can empower an even greater number of female students and faculty throughout the University of South Florida.

The continued success of WLP is the result of the collective generosity of all of our members who make WLP the impactful organization that it has become. WLP presents a wide variety of educational and leadership development programs annually at all three USF campuses and in our surrounding communities. WLP has created formal mentoring partnerships throughout the university with USF’s Center for Leadership & Civic Engagement, Office of Veteran Success, Athletics and the Judy Genshaft Honors College.


During this unprecedented time, many of our students are facing new financial realities. Your gift of any size helps provide essential needs and supplemental support that will help students succeed in their educational endeavors. The COVID-19 pandemic might alter the way education is pursued and delivered, but the WLP values of leadership and philanthropy remain strong. 

Your support provides WLP with an even greater opportunity to empower the next generation of female leaders through the transformational impact of education, mentoring engagements and leadership development programs. We invite you to to become a part of this significant force for change for women at USF.
