Winifred D. Wandersee Scholar-in-Residence Award

The Winifred D. Wandersee Scholar-in-Residence Award is given in memory of Professor of History and Chair of the Faculty Dr. Win Wandersee, who cared deeply about both her students and her scholarship and who enjoyed a national reputation as a historian of women in the workforce. Our community felt a tremendous loss when Win lost her heroic battle with cancer.

One of her many lasting contributions was the shepherding of the Scholar-in-Residence program named in her honor. It is designed to encourage the activity of scholarship in the context of a liberal arts college.

Winners of the award work on scholarly or artistic projects, which promise to be significant contributions to their fields. They are given financial support for their research and some reassigned time to work on their projects and to inform the campus community of their finds through lectures and classroom visits. In short, they serve as exemplary models of the teacher-scholar.

Applications from tenured and tenure-track faculty are requested each Fall Term.
