In 2016, eight black women, whose journeys brought them to Indiana University's School of Education as doctoral students, emerged as successful graduates in May of the same year. These women have created a scholarship to commemorate this event. The significance of a group of eight marginalized black women successfully completing doctoral degrees from one school at the same time was historical.
The Power of Critical Sisterhood
These gifts will be used to support a scholarship for a graduate student who has been accepted into the Doctoral program at the IUPUI School of Education, is in good academic standing, and is full-time. Because, as part of its mission, Indiana University is committed to diversity, special consideration will be given to underrepresented populations, including but not limited to financially challenged students, and/or students with diverse cultural experiences. The Donors have a preference for black women. The Scholarship is renewable as long as the student remains in good academic standing. Your donation of any amount will make a difference in the lives of the students we serve.
