The establishment of this scholarship demonstrates Dr. Carothers’ remarkable dedication to higher education with the intention of providing financial assistance to students and to encourage the same commitment to education and community involvement that he has continuingly demonstrated during his life. The student must be pursing a bachelor’s degree in English literature, writing or journalism. This scholarship may be renewable through the completion of 120 credits provided the student maintains an overall cumulative QPA of 3.0 or better. The individual must be enrolled on a full-time basis (as determined by Edinboro University policy) during both the Fall and Spring semesters.
DR. ARMENDIA P. DIXON FAMILY SCHOLARSHIP
The Dr. Armendia P. Dixon Family Scholarship has been created to provide financial assistance and enhance access to education for students of color who demonstrate exceptional writing ability. Dr. Dixon has established this scholarship not only to encourage commitment to education, but to support and motivate students’ creative writing potential. Preference will be given to a student of color from Erie or Crawford County. The student must have completed a minimum of one college writing course, earning a minimum “B” letter grade and demonstrating excellence in potential writing ability.
WILLIE MAE GOODWINE AND INEZ J. BASKIN SCHOLARSHIP OF JOURNALISM
Inez Jessie Baskin, who is nearing her 90th birthday, is an extraordinary woman who has led an amazing life. From Florala, Alabama, her parents, Cora and Albert Lorenzo Turner, raised her to be “color-blind.” Currently, Ms. Baskin speaks to groups of young children around the country, both about her work during the civil rights movement and her quest to erase bigotry and hatred. Because of her passion for education and journalism, the donors are establishing this scholarship not only to honor Inez J. Baskin, but to also encourage the same commitment in deserving Edinboro University students.
