Dora Phelps Work Study Scholarship
As a program assistant, Dora gave her service beyond the call of duty to both students and faculty. Her capacity for work, efficiency, accuracy, patience, and good nature as well as her interest in the students and the knowledge of the School, the university and the community contributed to the success of the School of Home Economics. This scholarship was established by Dr. Agnes Jones, head of Department of Home Economics for 25 years, to honor Dora Phelps’ contributions to the School. The scholarship is available to Family & Consumer Sciences, Dietetics, or Interior Architecture students who work as student employees at UWSP, and is awarded based on character, academic achievement, financial need, and concern for others.
