Alma Clark Glass Scholarship Endowment in STEM
The Alma Clark Glass Scholarship aims to counter anti-Black racism in STEM through by supporting the success of students working toward this goal. The scholarship is named after Alma Clark Glass, who studied biology at Western in 1906, and was the first Black person to enroll at WWU.
It is difficult to overstate the impact of providing financial assistance to deserving students, and in so doing, helping us to fulfill a core mission at WWU: advancing inclusive student success via a STEM education which provides tools for enhancing social mobility. Please join us on this transformative journey!
The initial $25,000 raised last year generated enough money to establish a fund that will live on in perpetuity. Every additional gift that takes us above and beyond this goal will enable even more students to receive financial support each year. If you would like to support our continued efforts to make STEM more inclusive, please consider donating to the Alma Clark Glass Scholarship fund to support students who have been affected by racism, with a preference for female identifying students in the sciences.
Thank you for joining us in making a difference!
