Dana Dunn Scholarship for Community Engagement

Thanks to a generous endowment recently established by Jim and Cheryl Lewis, the Honors College is pleased to offer a scholarship in honor of Dr. Dana Dunn, former UT Arlington Provost and Associate Professor of Sociology.

The Honors College has always encouraged students to participate in community service and to approach service as an opportunity to develop their skills as researchers and problem-solvers. The Dana Dunn Scholarship is designed to reward service learning projects based in a UTA course containing a designated service learning component. The project must have been conducted during the 2017-2018 academic year.

Projects based in an agency, institution or organization in the DFW Metroplex are particularly encouraged, but they may take place elsewhere. Dana Dunn Scholarship Projects may serve as the basis for awardees’ Honors Senior Projects.

Award amount: $500.00 (This scholarship is not renewable.)
Deadline to apply: May 1, 2018

Eligibility

Currently enrolled full-time active Honors students in good standing who are making sufficient progress toward their Honors degree (generally, this equates to at least 6 hours per academic year). Funds will be disbursed to student accounts in late spring. The project must have been conducted during the 2017-2018 academic year.

Procedures

Applying for the scholarship is done through Mav Scholarshop. Additional materials include:

Submit a 500-600 word essay with reflection of your service learning project, along with supporting materials as pertinent (photos, presentations, etc.), containing the following:

  • Please provide the name and email address of the professor or the community partner you worked with who will submit a letter testifying to your service learning project.
  • Include any photos or corresponding documents (optional)
