The B.A. Rudolph Foundation is proud to announce the creation of an endowment to fund the B.A. Rudolph Scholarship at the University of Arkansas’s Clinton School of Public Service. The $12,000 scholarship will be awarded annually to women who are rising-second year students who best embody the mission and values of the Foundation. The purpose of the scholarship is to alleviate the cost of an advanced degree by paying the full tuition as well as living expenses and funds for professional development. Our initial investment of $50,000 will cover the first three years of the scholarship, with additional investment by the Foundation at the end of that time.
Two of the Foundation co-founders, Rebecca Davis and Maggie Moore, announced the creation of the endowment while participating in the Clinton School Speakers Series on February 21, 2015. The first scholarship will be awarded at the end of March 2015, for use during the 2015-1016 academic year.
The B.A. Rudolph Scholarship honors the Board’s godmother, B.A. Rudolph (University of Arkansas, Class of 1978), who dedicated her personal and professional life to public service.
