Doreen W. St. Clair Endowed Scholarship
This scholarship was established in honor of Doreen St. Clair's incredible commitment and contribution to the Franklin College community as a professor and friend. Her commitment to student education and development began the day she arrived on campus and continues into retirement. While Doreen has been a leader and experienced achievements in a wide variety of professional organizations, this scholarship is in recognition of her significant positive impact and influence she has made on Franklin College students' lives. That impact not only touched the student but also their families and friends and continues well beyond the Franklin College academic years. She continues to be sought out by those students for her professional expertise, her wise and ethical counsel and her friendship. She has led, by example, both professionally and personally. Her teaching always extended well beyond the classroom and her department. This scholarship is to support a student who has an interest in wellness and/or disease prevention and who has demonstrated a commitment to the community in these areas. It supports one of Doreen's interests in helping each of us to become a more complete and contributing individual in society.
The recipient of the Doreen St. Clair Endowed Scholarship will be a student interested in wellness and/or disease prevention with a grade point average of 3.0 or higher. Eligible students shall submit an application which includes an essay, resume and two letters of support. Through the application process, students should provide evidence of sincere interest in the areas of wellness and/or disease prevention as well as involvement in the community in the areas of wellness and/or disease prevention. The selection committee for this scholarship will include the Chairs of the Natural Science Division, the Social Science Division and the Education Division as well as a member of the St. Clair family. The Chair of the Natural Science Division, in coordination with the Office of Financial Aid, will oversee the scholarship and be responsible for the call for applications and the selection process.
