The development office invites you to recommend one to two students for the Diversity and Inclusion Annual Scholarship. Nominees should be working to promote diversity on campus through their involvement in on-campus activities, in the classroom, and/or through their participation in community service. Which student(s) stand out to you as leaders in our efforts to make our campus more diverse and inclusive? The recipient will receive the scholarship for the 2019-20 academic year, so nominees should be freshmen, sophomores, or juniors. Please include a brief summary of why you are nominating them.
The nominated students will be invited to answer a short application which will be reviewed by a committee made up of faculty, staff, and students from the UP community. Once selected, the recipient will be recognized during the conclusion of Diversity Dialogues.
The Diversity and Inclusion Scholarship was created in 2016-17 by then Student Body President Brandon Rivera, in collaboration with other executive board members. This scholarship looks to not only continue the conversation of diversity and inclusion but to promote positive changes to the climate at UP. The topic of diversity is important because it allows a community to come together in unity and create a more inclusive place.
All student nominations are due by Wednesday, February 27, to Connie Ozyjowski, development, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
