Four Students Awarded the Moms Project Scholarship

On April 6, 2016, four College of Behavioral and Community Sciences students were awarded the Mom's Project Scholarship, an award exclusive to CBCS students. The luncheon, held in the Marshall Student Center, was held the same day the recipients presented their projects at the USF Undergraduate Research Symposium.

The Moms Project Scholarship Fund was established by three College of Behavioral and Community Sciences faculty members - Drs. Roger Boothroyd, Mary Armstrong, and Catherine Batsche - to honor their mothers who, for various reasons, were unable to pursue higher education. The fund supports undergraduate students pursuing research within the college.

We are proud to announce the 2016 recipients are Cecelia Ferguson, Crystal Johnson, Stephanie Raymond and Katie Colin.
