Award for Excellence in the Department of English

Scholarship Information

This scholarship was originated in 1982 by Lindsay McFadyen and several other members of the English department. Together, the faculty pooled their resources and created a private fund. It was established in order to reward a rising senior for consistent outstanding work in the department. The scholarship became endowed in 1985 by the Foundation and became an ongoing scholarship.
