Crowe Scholarship for Supplement to Kolb Memorial Scholarship

The Kolb Memorial scholarship is in honor of the first chairperson of the Department, who served from 1930 to 1946. Professor Kolb was known both in the United States and abroad for his research on rural primary groups and on the rural community. He established rural sociology in New Zealand, and made a major contribution to rural sociology in Brazil. The Kolb Memorial Scholarship may be awarded annually to an outstanding Community and Environmental Sociology student (undergraduate or graduate) who is nominated by current department faculty. Traditionally one award is made, and usually to a graduate student. The Scholarship Committee especially encourages nominations of students who are in their final year of study within our program. Nominees must be current students in good standing at the UW, enrolled in the joint Sociology-Community and Environmental Sociology graduate program or CES undergraduate major, and full-time students as determined by CALS or the Graduate School. Graduate student nominees must have a member of the Department of Community and Environmental Sociology as advisor of record. Nominations by the Scholarship Committee are typically solicited during the spring semester.
