Do you know any students who are making the grade and working for social justice? Tell them about two financial awards presented by UA to honor students who excel in both areas:
–Up to 5 JEFFREY BRACE AWARDS provide $500 each to any UVM student with a demonstrated commitment to community service, particularly in the area of social or economic justice.
–The LINDA BACKUS MEMORIAL AWARD provides $1,000 for an undergraduate with a commitment to community service who has completed at least two years at any college (not necessarily in Vermont) and who has an immediate family member who is a union member in Vermont. NOTE TO UA MEMBERS: This includes any junior or senior in YOUR family!
Deadline for both applications is April 1. Application details are on the United Academics website at www.unitedacademics.org/scholarships.html.
For more information, contact Denise Youngblood, chair of the UA Scholarship Committee: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please help us spread the word by making an announcement in your classes, sharing the information with students electronically, and encouraging particular students to apply.
