AAUP-Utica Student Scholarship Nominations due May 1!

AAUP-Utica members, do you have an outstanding student who could benefit from a $1,000 scholarship? 💰

If so, consider nominating them for one of the two AAUP-Utica $1,000 student scholarships

1️⃣  The Virgil C. Crisafulli Scholarship is awarded each spring to a Utica University student for demonstrated outstanding leadership in regard to at least one of AAUP’s core values such as academic freedom, professional responsibility, civic service, humanitarian concern for others, and solidarity with those who share the common goals of equity and a voice for all.

2️⃣  The Robert W. Millett Scholarship is awarded each spring to a Utica University student for academic excellence reflecting the values of the AAUP: respect for open dialogue and the free exchange of ideas; the right to self-expression; integrity in scholarly endeavors; and support for academic freedom.

While any nominee should have both an outstanding academic record and an interest in service to the community, the emphasis for each award is different. The Millett scholarship highlights academics and the Crisafulli scholarship highlights service.
