Dear nonprofit colleagues and friends,


Re: Ruth Taylor Scholarship Program



We are pleased to inform you that Westchester County residents and graduate students pursuing careers in social work or public health are invited to apply for scholarship assistance through the Ruth Taylor Award Fund. Average awards have been $3,600 with awards as high as $7,000.


The fund was established in tribute to Ruth Taylor upon her retirement as the county’s Commissioner of Public Welfare and in recognition of her nearly four decades of outstanding service. The Ruth Taylor Award Committee, including United Way of Westchester and Putnam, the Westchester County Department of Social Services, and Urban League is privileged to support public service through the achievements of award recipients.


There are three important criteria that must be met in order for an applicant to be eligible to apply for this award. 

ú  Applicant must be a legal resident of the United States and Westchester County (although may attend school elsewhere.)

ú  Applicant must be enrolled in graduate studies in Social Work or Public Health on a full-time basis.

ú  Applicant must not have previously received a Ruth Taylor Scholarship Award.


Financial need, public service and scholastic capacity are part of the evaluation criteria. Awards are issued annually. A change in major or enrollment status (to part-time) will result in loss of the scholarship award.


An application and documents are attached. Please consider posting and sharing information about this opportunity with the students in your program and with your community. For more information please contact dperez@uwwp.org.


DorisThank you for your consideration,



Doris Perez
