The students received their awards during a ceremony held on May 6, 2011. The dean of each school selects a graduating woman who has demonstrated a dedication to research and service to the University community, as well as academic excellence.

The 100 Years of Women Scholarship is awarded annually to a current undergraduate or graduate student, or a high school senior planning to enroll at UConn. Each recipient is honored because she has shown a commitment to women’s issues through service to their community or school.
