VIGO COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - A new scholarship, for diversity and inclusion, will be active this fall.
Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College announced details about the George Floyd Memorial Scholarship on Monday.
$50,000 will go to a black, undergraduate student, with good academic standing and a financial need.
President Dottie King says The Woods wanted to highlight its commitment to a national cause.
"We want to do something positive in the midst of the turmoil in the country," said King, "and that's recognizing there's a real racial disparity in our country, and this scholarship is a brainchild of our alumni, who care deeply."
The scholarship is led by the graduating Class of 1965 at SMWC.
