Three Morse Scholarship winners share project outcomes, tips for applying
Know an undergraduate interested in completing an ambitious, community-minded summer project or internship? The Marjorie J. and Richard L.D. Morse Family and Community Public Policy Scholarship might be the answer to their funding needs.
Students interested in applying for the $3,000 scholarship are invited to join a panel of previous recipients from 5-6 p.m. Wednesday, March 8, in the Hemisphere Room on Hale Library's fifth floor. Individuals who would like to hear about the amazing research, travel and community-building enabled by the Morse Scholarship are also invited to attend.
Jane Schillie, curator of university archives and special collections, will outline the application process. A question-and-answer session and light refreshments will follow.
The award funds a student project that encourages the development of public policy which impacts the quality of family and community life. Applications will be accepted until March 29. For more information, visit the website.
