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.
