Crowe Scholarship Guidelines

Crowe Scholarship Fund
Guidelines Adopted February 4, 2013

The UW Board of Regents accepted a bequest to establish the Evelyn T. Crowe Scholarship Fund in July 1986, for “Scholarships in Rural Sociology.” Evelyn T. Crowe was an undergraduate major in Rural Sociology in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, and wished to recognize her appreciation for her excellent education by establishing this scholarship for undergraduates in Community and Environmental Sociology and graduate students in the combined Community and Environmental Sociology/Sociology program. In June 2003, the University of Wisconsin Foundation received an additional bequest from the estate of Evelyn T. Crowe for the same purpose—providing scholarship support to Rural Sociology students.
