New Lynn Scholarships Made Possible by Turkin & Goldstein
The Marshall Turkin Honors Award and the Eleanor Goldstein Scholarship will be awarded to a handful of deserving Lynn students in 2021 if they submit their applications by Sept. 20
The two scholarships will be available to students who are members of the Project Civitas group, which is a new Lynn initiative aimed at instilling civility and decency in students of the school during this election year. The hope of the donors and Lynn faculty alike is that this program will help students coexist despite their different opinions. The candidates will need to represent the values of the program before being considered for the scholarship.
“One of the greatest challenges facing democracy today is the lack of civility in politics and public life. A healthy democracy requires a commitment to cooperation and the ability to compromise,” said Dr. Watson, American Studies, professor.
The Marshall Turkin Scholarship amounts to $1,000 and will be awarded to a single student who has a financial need and is actively engaged with Project Civitas. The Goldstein Scholarship has a more rigorous application process and requires students to complete a report on climate change, sustainability, population change or civility. This scholarship will be awarded to four students in the amount of $2,500.
Students that are interested should complete the report and submit it along with a single page about themselves, their Lynn transcript and a single page about their interest in one of the four issues. These materials should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by Sept. 20.
