Established in 2014, the Marva Rudolph Fund honors the life and legacy of Marva Rudolph, a long-term employee and champion of equity, diversity, and inclusion at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. Rudolph was passionate about students and creating respectful and inclusive living, learning, and working environments. The fund was created to assist students in their personal development as it relates to diversity and inclusion and to support their initiatives to build a more accessible, equitable and welcoming campus community. As of fall 2021, the Marva Rudolph Fund will fund the Marva Rudolph Scholarship.
Full-time students at the university who have completed 30 credit hours or more; have a cumulative GPA of 2.5 or higher; and have demonstrated their involvement in diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts are eligible to apply for the Marva Rudolph Scholarship.
Scholarships in the amount of $1,000 will be awarded for the Spring 2021 semester. The scholarship is not renewable. Applications are due January 31, 2021 at 12 PM EST. Recipients will be notified of their selection by February 20, 2021.
