The TWU FSA and the TWU FSA Denton Area Chapter recently recognized 2014-2015 scholarship students at a Saturday morning reception on the Denton campus. Special guest and featured speaker was Dr. Carine Feyten, Chancellor and President of TWU. More than 100 were on hand to recognize the current students and their families. The awarding of scholarships to current students by alumni dates back more than 100 years.
In 1905, ten College of Industrial Arts (now TWU) graduates attended the first meeting of the Alumnae Association and each gave 50 cents to a memorial fund intended to “defray expenses while attending school.” In 1914 the fund reached more than $200, and to this day, those gifts continue to grow. Since then, current students, alumni, family members, and friends of the University contribute time, talent, and financial resources to provide scholarships to our students.
Scholarships awarded by the TWU Former Students Association recognize excellence in scholarly inquiry, stewardship, and volunteer service to the university and the community. These generous awards provide many students with the financial support and encouragement required to complete their education and begin professional careers.
