The Dorothy Cooper Memorial Scholarship Announces Its Winners!
Congratulations to English Majors Margaret Foss and Ashlynn Ritter!
The English Department is pleased to announce that Margaret Foss and Ashlynn Ritter were chosen as this year’s recipients of the Dorothy Cooper Memorial Scholarship.
Named for the grandmother of a Cal Poly English major alumnae, the Dorothy Cooper Memorial Scholarship provides financial assistance to Cal Poly English majors and minors participating in study abroad programs. Cooper believed in the promise of travel to learn about new cultures and people, and this scholarship is designed to support students who might not otherwise be able to travel. Collaboratively administered by the English Department and the Cal Poly International Center, each scholarship is $1000.
Senior Margaret Foss will study in Valladolid, Spain, and sophomore Ashlynn Ritter will study in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. Both are participating in Cal Poly-led summer programs.
