The Alison Piepmeier Scholarship was established in honor of the late Alison Piepmeier, Professor of Women’s and Gender Studies and Director of the Women's and Gender Studies program at the College of Charleston. Alison was a scholar and feminist, known for her activism and her many publications including her book Girl Zines: Making Media, Doing Feminism. The scholarship’s goal is to reward a Women's and Gender Studies student with a record of feminist scholarship and activism. The awardee must be a full-time student at the College of Charleston and a Women’s and Gender Studies major or minor, must have an academic GPA of at least 3.0, and must have a demonstrated record of feminist activism and leadership.
This scholarship is $2,500 for one student. In order to be awarded in spring, 2017, the application deadline is Monday, November 28, 2016.
The Ketner Emerging Leaders Scholarship was established to reward students with a record of working to achieve social justice, to encourage students to become integrally involved in activities to promote social justice, and promote leadership that leads to social justice. The intent is to inspire and financially aid students who are actively engaged in creating and promoting social justice locally, nationally, and globally. It is the Donor's wish that through this scholarship, and the experiences that recipients have at the College, that Ketner Emerging Leaders will be change agents who identify social problems and devise steps to ameliorate those problems. Ketner scholars are not simply volunteers. They are change agents that are committed to making a positive impact locally, nationally, and globally.
