Linda K. Shamoon Scholarship in Public Writing

This award honors a rising junior Writing and Rhetoric major who shows a keen interest in public writing and community action.

Send nominations of current sophomore majors who will have completed at least 60 credits by Fall 2018 to Donna Hayden, greengirl@uri.edu by March 15, 2018. Self nominations are encouraged. The winner of this award will be announced at the WRT End-of-year Celebration (late April/early May 2018).
