Nancy Denney Memorial Scholarship

The Nancy W. Denney Memorial Scholarship was established by friends, family and colleagues in memory of Nancy Denney, a devoted professor of psychology and a single parent who died of breast cancer in 1995. The goal was to continue Denney’s advocacy for students who faced joint responsibilities of parenting, work, and study. The scholarship exists due to a generous initial contribution by the Evjue Foundation and contributions by numerous private donors moved by her advocacy for student-parents.

This scholarship supports a single parent student pursuing their first undergraduate degree in the College of Letters & Sciences. Eligibility requirements include:

  • Demonstrated financial need
  • Head of household
  • Potential for success
  • U.S. citizen, permanent resident, asylee, or eligible non-citizen

The application for this award is to be submitted through the ‘Scholarships for Nontraditional, Adult, & Single Parent Students’ opportunity. There are up to 15 individual scholarships associated with this one application, administered by the Division of Continuing Studies.
