Scholarship Fund Created

On Wednesday, February 25th the W&M IRC voting membership approved the creation of a Scholarship Fund with a favorable vote of 84% of dues-paying members and a unanimous approval of the Executive Board.

Created by sitting Finance Director Serena Saffarini and Assistant Finance Directors Torey Jackson and Graham Young, the Scholarship Fund will consist of up to three scholarships per year that can be awarded to IRC members pursuing a non-paying or low-paying summer internship opportunity related to the field of international relations. The award is contingent upon a record of supporting the club in all of its endeavors, including staffing the conferences hosted on campus.

Saffarini hopes that in the future alumni might consider donating to the fund to create even more opportunities for club members to pursue summer opportunities that they may not otherwise be able to afford.
