NE student Madison Allen is one of 54 undergraduate students from the University of Tennessee to receive the Marva Rudolph Scholarship from the Office of Diversity and Engagement. The fund was created in 2014 to assist students in their personal development as it relates to diversity and inclusion and to support their initiatives to build a more accessible, equitable and welcoming campus community. The 2021 recipients are the first to receive scholarship awards.
“The demand for diverse STEM graduates is ever-present,” said Assistant Vice Chancellor for the Division of Diversity and Engagement Javiette Samuel. “Madison is sure to leave her mark on the field of nuclear engineering and the world. I look forward to the cutting-edge technologies and research that she will lead in the near future and beyond as she is sure to be one of the most innovative and emerging leaders in nuclear medicine.”
The Marva Rudolph Fund honors the life and legacy of Marva Rudolph, a long-term employee and champion of equity, diversity, and inclusion at UT Knoxville. Rudolph was passionate about students and creating respectful and inclusive living, learning, and working environments.
