Dr. Carol R. Virostek NCCWSL Scholarship
Presented to a student leader at CCSU who works, interns, or volunteers at the University of Connecticut Women’s Center or the Ruthe Boyea Women’s Center. The recipient must be a freshman, sophomore, or junior.
Selection Process: The director of the women’s center, often an AAUW campus representative, along with her assistant, associate, or designated colleague, will create a selection committee. The committee may include other faculty or staff members who are supportive of the women’s center.
They will develop their own nomination/selection process as best suits their needs, but the recipient should be an undergraduate who has made significant contributions to the women’s center and who will be able to do so for at least one more year following the conference.
