This scholarship award was established to provide financial support for someone who gives to others. Judith Gorman Krieger ‘63 realized that in this busy life, people facing daily human struggles often need the gifts of time and compassion. The Krieger Scholarship recipient should be a giver, someone willing to share time with a sibling, an older family member, or people in the community. The scholarship is to be a gift to allow that student more opportunity to share time with and show compassion to others.
A $10,000.00 tuition-based scholarship will be awarded to a recipient during the 2015-2016 academic year.
