Scholarship Supports Women's Studies Program

Thursday, March 17, 2011

Michael Menkes, a UWG criminology and women’s studies student, on behalf of the Menkes family and in celebration of Women’s History Month, is pleased to announce the creation of the Menkes Family Women’s Studies Scholarship. This scholarship will give generous support to students who are planning to minor in the Women’s Studies Program.

Women’s Studies draws upon and influences many disciplines and helps the university provide a rich and flexible liberal arts education.  “Examining women’s contributions throughout time is critical; not doing so is to ignore half of history,” said Menkes.

The University of West Georgia is extremely grateful for Menkes’ gift, which will enhance students' understanding of women's history, experiences, and modes of expression and reflects the importance of interdisciplinary learning.
