The Catherine Curran O’Malley Scholarship
In International Studies
The College of Liberal Arts invites applications for the Catherine Curran O’Malley Scholarship in International Studies. The scholarship is supported by an endowment created by Mary Fulton Shock ’75 to honor the public service as a public prosecutor, judge, active volunteer and advocate, and First Lady of Maryland. In making the gift, Ms. Shock noted that Catherine O’Malley ‘85 is “representative of what Towson hopes for its alumni – successful in her field and a well-rounded individual.”
Undergraduate students are eligible to stand as candidates for the award when:
· They have a declared major in International Studies.
· They have completed at least three courses at Towson counting toward the International Studies major before submitting an application.
· They have a grade point average above 3.2.
· A Towson University transcript.
· A statement discussing the student’s interest in and commitment to the study of international or global issues, including when appropriate future plans (two pages maximum).
These documents should be submitted together as one application to the Office of the Dean, Liberal Arts Building, Room 2213 no later than Friday, March 15th, 2013 by 12:00 noon.
One or more scholarships will be awarded each year as funds
permit, and recipients who continue to meet all criteria for the
scholarship will be eligible for a renewal of the award in a subsequent
year. The amount of the award may vary somewhat with the availability of
funds but will normally stand at approximately $2000 per award
recipient. The selection committee for the award will include the Dean
of the College of Liberal Arts, the Director of International Studies
program, and at least two additional faculty members. Should no
International Studies major apply for or meet the criteria for the
scholarship, the award may be given to any student majoring in the
College of Liberal Arts.
