Congrats to Isabel Lott ('17 Biology major and Women's Studies and Spanish minor) for being awarded the 2014-2015 Laura Scudder Scholarship! Isabel is going to become a doctor specializing in women's health and serving low-income and minority populations.
In honor of the inspirational memory and trailblazing contributions of Laura Scudder, the Laura Scudder Scholarship is awarded to a student demonstrating an interest and commitment to women's issues, scholarship, and leadership. The lucky recipient is awarded a $5,000 scholarship.
Applicants were asked to submit a 500-word essay explaining how their major field of study intersects with the study of women. In addition to demonstrating academic motivation, applicants were asked to provide evidence of experience, interest and commitment to women’s issues outside of the classroom (e.g., social outreach, activism, leadership relevant to women). Decisions were based on demonstrable commitment to women’s issues, academic merit and financial need.
To apply for the Scudder scholarship email firstname.lastname@example.org with “Scudder Scholarship Application: [Your Name]” in Subject line; paper copies may be dropped off at the Department of Sociology main office, Roosevelt Hall 200.
DEADLINE: APRIL 11, 2014 by 5 p.m.
