BRIEF: Racial and Social Justice Scholarship added to SIUE’s financial aid offerings

A new scholarship was recently created at SIUE called the Racial and Social Justice Scholarship, which the university plans to begin offering in Fall 2021.

This scholarship will be given to at least one student each year who demonstrates commitment to anti-racism and a desire to pursue this cause both while at SIUE and beyond.

The Anti-Racism Task Force proposed creating this scholarship. Vice Chancellor for Advancement Rachel Stack, a member of the Task Force’s Core Council, is leading the efforts to collect donations for the fund. 

Stack said they recently received a $5,000 donation and are about halfway to their initial goal of raising $25,000.
