Jane Maddy Book Award

Thanks to the immense generosity of Daniel and Sarah Maddy, as well as the earlier Maddy family donation, we are thrilled to announce that we have achieved our initial goal of $10,000, enabling us to establish an endowed scholarship fund in Jane Maddy's honor. Jane was one of the founding members of Women's Studies and taught Psychology courses that were part of the Women's Studies curriculum. Jane also served on the Women's Studies Advisory Board during all of her years at UMD, and after she retired, served as the Chair of that group for many years. She was very dedicated to Women's Studies and feminist scholarship and causes, and we are very much looking forward to being able to offer scholarships to our students in her honor. This endowed fund will enable us to offer two $500 scholarships annually to Women's Studies majors who have demonstrated their commitment to the mission of Women's Studies through their scholarship and activism. As we continue to grow this fund, we will be able to offer scholarships to even more of our students.
