The application process is now open for the Casey O’Brien Outstanding Activist Award. Qualified applicants will have demonstrated involvement in student activism (on or off-campus) and leadership within the areas of women’s issues, gender and sexual equality, and social or racial justice and will be enrolled in a Women’s and Gender Studies program (major, minor, master’s or graduate certificate).
Students who wish to be considered must have a completed profile on file in the UWM Scholarship Portal. Your profile is a one-time set up that will match you with all available scholarships and awards. So it is important that you complete the profile both to be considered for this opportunity as well as all future scholarships. Access the portal at: https://uwm.academicworks.com/.
In addition, students must have a completed College of Letters & Science profile on file in the UWM Scholarship Portal. This profile consists of just one item – a copy of your most recent UWM transcript.
In addition to both of these standard profiles, students who wish to be considered for this award must complete a description about their involvement in activism. You will find the link to the Casey O’Brien Outstanding Activist Award on your dashboard of the scholarship portal, or you may search for it by name.
The application deadline is March 31, 2020. Technical problems with the portal can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
