Dorothy Cooper Memorial Scholarship

The English Department is pleased to announce the first three recipients of the Dorothy Cooper Memorial Scholarship for study abroad. English majors Molly Canfield and Madison Utley join Animal Science major/English minor Katherine Miller in winning $1000 scholarships to help support their upcoming study abroad experiences. Canfield and Utley travel to London this summer through Cal Poly's program, and Miller will study at Massey University in New Zealand next fall.

The Dorothy Cooper Memorial Scholarship is named for the grandmother of a Cal Poly English major alumna. Dorothy longed to travel--to learn about new people and cultures--but was never able to afford it. The donors, Susan M. Birkenseer and James J. Birkenseer, hope this scholarship helps students with financial need achieve their dreams of studying abroad. In this way, they hope to honor Dorothy Cooper by enriching students' lives through travel.
