  • Preisendanz-Schmid Scholarship

    The Preisendanz-Schmid Scholarship provides financial support to one exemplary member of the Honors Program entering the senior year.  Students are nominated each spring by professors and peers in recognition of their academic and community achievements in the Honors Program.  The student must be in good academic standing, on their way to fulfilling all of their honors requirements, and have unmet need as determined by the Office of Financial Aid.  The scholarship was established by Honors Program alumna Donna M. Schmid (Psychology, ’78) in memory of her parents and grandparents.
