WOOO! Hoo! I applied for the Boscov Scholarship months ago, first competing with peers to represent the School of Education. After this, I was put up against the selected representatives of other schools here on the Umass campus, and won!! Still can’t believe it! Thanks so much to all of you who supported me in this process, to the Boscov family, and thanks mostly to my husband, Thorne Palmer, with whom I could not even dream of such an accomplishment.
The scholarship pays me for a year to do my work in virtual education and health literacy, plus pays for my tuition and healthcare benefits..not too bad!
