The Joanne Easley Arnold English Scholars Fund is a two-year award designed to recognize a top English major in honor of the donor, Joanne Easley Arnold. She is a graduate of the English Department, B.A. ’52. This scholarship is housed in the English Department to represent Dr. Arnold’s gratitude for the solid and inspiring four years she spent here. Dr. Arnold, a long-time CU-Boulder professor and administrator, endowed this award to give outstanding students special financial and intellectual support. Only top performing students in the English Department’s gateway courses (ENGL 2102 and ENGL 2112) are eligible to apply. These students will be identified at the end of their sophomore year by grade point average by the department and invited to submit an essay. The essays will be evaluated by department officers and the best essayist will receive a $2,000 scholarship (to be applied to tuition) disbursed over two academic years.
