The main objective of the Gator Club of Naples is to award scholarships to deserving Collier County area UF students. Proceeds from each and every fundraising activity held by the Gator Club of Naples are directly allocated to the Gator Club of Naples Scholarship Fund. Each year, those Collier County area high school graduates, who desire to apply for such scholarship opportunities, complete a comprehensive application which includes the requirements of a transcript, personal statement, and letters of recommendation. Following a thorough selection process, a certain number of recipients (as dependent upon the number of applicants, the quality of the applications, and the then current size of the Scholarship Fund) are chosen to receive a scholarship. The scholarships are then awarded during the annual Send-Off Reception and Scholarship Award Ceremony. If you wish to receive additional information regarding the scholarship application process or if you wish to donate to the Gator Club of Naples Scholarship Fund, please contact the Gator Club of Naples at

The scholarship application for Collier County area students that have been accepted into and enrolled at the University of Florida to begin their freshman year during the Summer of 2016, Fall of 2016, or Spring of 2017 semesters, is now available for completion and submission. Please find the application here. Please make sure to follow the directions set forth on the application. PLEASE NOTE THAT THE SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION SUBMISSION DEADLINE HAS BEEN EXTENDED TO FRIDAY, MAY 13, 2016.
