The Anne Rudo Memorial Scholarship is an LS&A scholarship for which students concentrating or with an academic interest in both Psychology and Biology are eligible. The scholarship is given in memory of Anne Rudo, a senior student at The University of Michigan at the time of her death. She was to have received a B.S. in Psychology with a minor in Biology and planned to pursue an education in medicine. In addition to her academic achievements, Anne worked in volunteer positions in the medical field. Selection of the scholarship recipient is based primarily on financial need, academic potential, academic interest in both psychology and biology, and consideration of past or present community or volunteer work. The award is for approximately $1,000. All applications will be reviewed by a subcommittee of the Committee for Student Academic Affairs.
