Meriam Rosen Scholarship for Excellence in Dance

Scholarship History

John C. Ford 64 and Sandra Poster 64 established the Meriam Rosen Scholarship for Excellence in Dance in February 2009 to provide support for merit-based scholarships to undergraduate or graduate students in the Department of Dance, now part of the School of Theatre, Dance and Performance Studies. This fund was established in honor of Meriam Rosen's retirement, after more than 50 years at the University.
