We are currently accepting applications and nominations for the Joseph M. Mitchell Memorial Scholarship Award. Applications and nominations for the Fall 2014 semester award are due July 1, 2014. All University Graduate and Undergraduate students are encouraged to apply.
The scholarship award was established in recognition of Joe Mitchell's compassion for the less fortunate members of our society and in honor of his ability to befriend, guide and mentor individuals whose ability to succeed as students at our institution was challenged by some personal or family circumstance. Scholarships will be awarded each fall and spring semester to one or more deserving students. These are one-time awards of up to $1,000 per recipient.
For the Fall 2014 semester, the Joseph M. Mitchell Memorial Scholarship will award an additional one time scholarship of $250 to honor the memory of Michelle Humanick, who passed away on July 25, 2010 from a car accident. Michelle served 15 years with the Department of Resident Life, and was a beloved colleague and friend, an extraordinary designer and the founder and first Manager of Resident Life’s Design and Publications unit. Michelle is remembered for her special talents for befriending, guiding and mentoring both students and full-time professionals with whom she worked.
During the Fall 2014 award process, students may apply to the Joseph Mitchell Memorial and Michelle Humanick Scholarships through http://josephmitchell.umd.edu. In addition to the one-time $1,000 Mitchell scholarship award, a second, one-time $250 scholarship honoring Michelle Humanick will be awarded. Students will only be eligible to receive one of the awards.
