In honor of Dorothy Jane Center, and her great-granddaughter Dorothy Anne St. Claire. Dorothy Jane’s Puritan ancestors arrived in Boston in the 1620s and 1630s in order to practice their religion freely. Dorothy Anne is a bright, independent music lover with a skilled photographer’s eye. The inspiration of both of these women to delve deep and question reality, question existence, and question if there is a God, has led to the foundation of this scholarship.
Award amount is $1,000 yearly. Deadline for applications is the beginning of March (see here for details). The Dorothy Gift will be awarded by March 25.
