Eveline Schuster Memorial Award/Scholarship

The purpose of the Eveline Schuster Memorial Award/Scholarships is to offer financial assistance to cover a student-designated sociology project to be conducted while the student is enrolled at UAA. The award is to encourage creative thinking and excellence in sociology by providing an opportunity for students to collect and analyze data and/or apply sociological perspective to the real world.  Ultimately, the award may encourage students to pursue sociology as a career.

There is also a scholarship portion of this endowment, which may be used to cover educational costs, such as tuition and fees, rather than to cover the costs of a project. Please indicate in a cover letter whether you are applying for the award to cover the costs of a project or for the scholarship to assist with educational expenses.

This fund was established in the memory of Eveline Schuster, deceased spouse of retired UAA Sociology Professor Edmund Schuster, Ph.D.
