Linda C. Fox Academic Award

The Linda C. Fox Academic Award was established in spring 2009 to honor the long time Director of the Women's Studies program at IPFW. The funding for this academic merit award is generously donated by Community Friends of Women's Studies, Inc. During the award's first four years of existence, it was given to the top performing women's studies major for a particular year. In 2012, CFWS expanded the award to include all women's studies majors who meet the eligibility requirements.

To receive the award students must:

  • be a women's studies major
  • have completed at least 9 hours toward the requirements of the WOST major
  • have completed or registered for a combined 60 credits of course work (generally, this means having a class standing as an advanced sophomore, a junior, or a senior at the time of the award)
  • have an overall GPA of 3.5 or above

Recipients:

2009 - Nicole Affolder
2011 - Layli Magers
2011 - Cailynn Smith
2014 - Amity Pauley
2014 - Monica Young

Each spring, the director of the Women's Studies Program identifies students eligible for the award. Students with questions about their eligibility should contact Dr. Janet Badia.
