Glasscock Challenge Scholars Archive

This scholarship provides recipients with $10,000 per year for three  years and allows for an additional award of up to $5,000 for serious  study-abroad experience. The purpose of the scholarship is to encourage  adventurous students in technical and scientific disciplines to explore  the humanities beyond the requirements of the core curriculum in order  to integrate the lessons of the humanities into their life’s work.

This scholarship is made possible through the generous gift of Susanne M.and Melbern G. Glasscock ’59.

2008-2009 Academic Year

Jennifer Williams is a biomedical science major who plans a  career as a physician. The Glasscock Challenge Scholarship’s provision  for a study abroad experience allowed her to  travel to Germany in the summer of 2007 for an intensive course on the History of Medicine.

Hannah Jones is currently majoring in Biomedical Science, with  the future goal of attending the College of Veterinary Medicine. She  plans to take additional coursework in Philosophy and History in order  to broaden her understanding of the relationship between the humanities  and the scientific disciplines that form the core curriculum of her  study.
