In December of 1989, a Memorial Fund was established to honor the memory of Ruth R. Gossett, a faculty member of the School of Social Work and Human Services who had devoted her career to preparing social workers to empower people of color to attain the highest possible quality of life.
The purpose of the Fund is to provide scholarships for Master of Social Work students who have demonstrated a commitment to working with people of color and plan to continue such activities throughout their professional careers. The recipients of the award will receive support for up to two years of full-time study, or in the case of the part-time student, through the period in which they student is enrolled in the planned part-time program. Granting of the award beyond the first year will be dependent upon the student remaining in good standing according to University and School policies.
