EAU CLAIRE — The first recipient of the newly created $1,000 Muriel M. Boyken Diversity Scholarship will be selected during the spring semester of the 1999-2000 academic year at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire.
The scholarship, which will be paid during the 2000-2001 academic year, was created with a $19,000 gift to the UW-Eau Claire Foundation from William and Muriel Boyken, Eau Claire.
"We very much appreciate the Boykens' latest commitment to assisting talented students attend UW-Eau Claire," said Dr. Jack Fistler, president of the UW-Eau Claire Foundation. "The students and the university will benefit from their generosity."
The Boykens have been longtime supporters of UW-Eau Claire's diversity efforts.
African-American, American Indian, Asian or Hispanic students who have shown leadership ability and involvement at UW-Eau Claire are eligible for the Muriel M. Boyken Diversity Scholarship. It is preferred that the recipients be Native American and/or students with an interest in music who are pursuing a bachelor's degree.
Recipients must be full-time students in good academic standing and at the sophomore or higher level. Applicants' participation in overall campus activities as well as their involvement in American Ethnic activities and programs will be considered when recipients are selected.
