The Luverne Walton Scholarship
The Luverne Walton Scholarship in Women Studies was created in the fall of 1996 to recognize the contributions of Professor Walton to the establishment of the Women Studies Program (now the Women's and Gender Studies Department) at MU and to gender equity on the MU campus.
In keeping with Luverne Walton's contributions to MU, the scholarships will be awarded to undergraduate students who have demonstrated a commitment to the study of women and to gender equity.
The first Luverne Walton scholarship was awarded for the 1999-2000 academic year. While substantial funds have been raised, fundraising efforts are ongoing at this time. See our Giving page for more details.
The Women's and Gender Studies Department is calling for applications for its Walton Scholarship. We will award a scholarship to an outstanding undergraduate student who has demonstrated a commitment to the study of women's /gender issues and to gender equity. We will award up to two scholarships of $1,250 for spring 2014. You need not be a Women's and Gender Studies major to apply.
Luverne Walton was a distinguished faculty member at MU who helped found Women Studies and advocated for improved conditions for women faculty, staff, and students on our campus. The scholarship is designed to identify students who exemplify the special talents and commitments of Professor Walton.
Deadline for applications is December 2, 2013.
Full details concerning the application process, and a list of required materials, are included on the application form.
