The Penny Allen Endowed Scholarship Award was established in 1983 to honor Professor Emeritus Sara B. Penny Allen’s selfless service, unfailing commitment, leadership, and contributions to student life at UA. She was a social worker for many years at Bryce Hospital, a teacher in the School of Social Work at UA, and chair of the University Union Board of Governors. She valued the Union, now the Ferguson Student Center, because of its role in unifying campus and bringing diverse populations together.
The Penny Allen Award recognizes one student and one non-student (faculty or staff) who have made significant contributions to student life at the Capstone. There is a preference for individuals who have not been recognized previously with awards.
The nomination form will open January 1, 2021 and close on February 28, 2021. The Vice President for Student Life’s Scholarship Committee will review applications, and recipients will be honored at a special luncheon, receive a commemorative plaque and an honorarium in recognition of their considerable contributions to campus life at the Capstone.Nominate a student Nominate a faculty or staff member
