Elsie Stouffer '24 Scholarship
The Elsie Stouffer '24 Scholarship provides funding for graduate study leading to a career in public service in Latin America.

This year, there is approximately $17,000 to be awarded for graduate study; this graduate study does not need to be undertaken immediately following graduation.
