The Beulah Alexander Memorial Scholarship was created by the generosity of an alumna of the College of Arts and Sciences. In making this award possible, the donor hopes that each recipient will make a personal pledge to try to help others who desire a college or university degree at such time that they are financially able to do so, and in this way, pass on the gift of an education. Awardees will receive $500 for the academic year, and the award may be repeated in successive years to students based on the recommendation of the review committee for a maximum of four years per student.
