Edith Carrier Scholarship

Each spring semester since 1988, the JMU Women’s Club has awarded an academic scholarship in honor of former JMU first lady, Edith Carrier.  The $1000 scholarship is presented by the Women's Club in recognition of the scholastic achievements of a full-time JMU student who is the child of any full-time JMU employee and who holds the class standing of a second semester freshman through a second semester junior.

The JMU Women's Club is currently accepting applications for the 2004 Edith Carrier Scholarship. Any application must include: complete name, current address, phone number, JMU employee connection, major, academic level (Freshmen, Sophomore, Junior, Senior) and current cumulative GPA; and a brief essay detailing what the JMU community means to the student and his or her family.

Applications should be mailed (in hard copy, not emailed) to:
