2018-2019 Dorothy Goodwin Scholars Program

$1,000 - $5,000 scholarships available for selected female students and their faculty mentors who are conducting innovative research or developing creative projects

Proposal Deadline: Sunday, October 28, 2018

Dorothy Goodwin, educator, politician, world traveler, visionary, and family member, inspired women and girls to live beyond limitations and realize their full potential.  She recognized and modeled that reaching one’s potential requires challenging opportunities, committed mentors, and financial support.  In honor of her influence and philanthropic spirit, and with gratitude for the generosity of her friends, The Women’s Advancement Initiative is proud to announce the 2018 – 2019 Dorothy Goodwin Scholars Program.


Dorothy Goodwin Scholars will be creative self-starters who meet the following criteria:

  • Female students who will be sophomores, juniors, seniors or graduate students in the fall of 2018 at any school or college at the University of Hartford studying any academic discipline are eligible to apply.
  • Applicants must be in excellent academic standing (3.0 ≥ for overall GPA; 3.5 ≥ for major).
  • Student(s) must propose an innovative scholarly research or creative project that will be explored in partnership with a University of Hartford faculty mentor (adjunct faculty may participate).
  • Be available to work on the project for a minimum of 200 hours during the academic year to complete no later than summer 2019.  A strong preference will be given to applicants whose research will take place on campus.  The program includes participation at additional events, which students must be available to attend throughout the academic year, unless there is a schedule conflict.

Award Detail

Selected student applicants will receive a total award package of $1,000-$5,000. In addition, faculty mentors will also receive $500 toward professional development in recognition of their service and project oversight.
