Graduate Student (Verna M. Lefebvre) Award

Graduate students registered in a Master or Doctoral program in the field of Home Economics/Human Ecology may apply. This initiative for this award comes from the recognition of underfunding of graduate students in general, and Home Economics/Human Ecology fields, specifically. Preference will be given to students who have an undergraduate degree in a Home Economics/Human Ecology field. This has now become a Designated Award due to a generous bequest from the estate of the late Verna M. Lefebvre.
