Dorothy Scholarship

Drs. Padgett Walsh, Caraway, and Wilson with 2018 recipient Gillian Mohn

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 noon, March 2, 2021.

Recipient Criteria:

  • A female undergraduate student.
  • Philosophy or Religious Studies major.
  • Cumulative grade point average minimum of 3.0 (on a 4.0 scale).
  • FAFSA on file with Iowa State University’s Student Financial Aid.
