NEW! Collections at the Center:  Beyond Daly’s Promise: Lessons from America’s Oldest Place Based Scholarship. Presented by Sam Stern, professor and Dean Emeritus, College of Education. The Daly Scholarship, first awarded in 1922, is America’s oldest continuously operating place-based scholarship. It’s hard to imagine a place more distant from higher education than Lake County, Oregon. In 1922, when the first scholarships were awarded, it took three days to travel the almost 300 miles from Lakeview to the nearest college. Yet, each year since 1922, scholarships have been awarded to the majority (sometimes all) of the qualified high school graduates with about 2,000 scholarships awarded to date. Drawing on both interviews, a survey of scholarship recipients, and a summer-long cross-country bike trip with stops to meet with recipients, Sam Stern describes the history and impact of the remarkable Daly Fund. Wednesday, May 10, 4 p.m. Light refreshments will be served.
