Don McLeod Scholarship
This scholarship is established in memory of Don McLeod, one of the founding faculty members of Fairhaven College. Don helped dream the College into existence. In his commitment to teaching, he inspired countless students to find wonder in the worlds of poetry, literature and writing and to pursue meaningful relationships between the written word and the everyday world. He gently guided his students to uncover, understand and use their unique talents. The award is intended for continuing students who demonstrate an interest in either literature or writing. It is renewable annually to students who show satisfactory academic progress. Renewal is not automatic. It is contingent on an application that justifies renewal and continued success meeting the criteria for the scholarship. Award amounts vary but are approximately $500 per year.
