Sarah Martinsen Sociology Scholarship

Established by Drs. Wayne and Della Martinsen in Sarah’s memory. Recipients must have declared a major or minor in sociology at the time of application and throughout the duration of the award. Applicants must demonstrate a record of community or public engagement and desire to continue to work in non-profit and community activities. This award is intended to support an unpaid internship or structured service-learning experience with a non-profit, community-focused organization. The internship activity sponsored by this award may not simultaneously be used to satisfy clinical or internship requirements of any major or minor outside of sociology. During the period of the award the recipient will take an independent study course with a sociology faculty member to explore larger sociological themes connected to the selected community experience or internship. This course will result in a public presentation and written report detailing the activity supported by this award with the community and the donors.
