Carolyn Lipson-Walker Outstanding Senior Scholarship for Jewish Studies Students 2021


The Robert A. and Sandra S. Borns Jewish Studies Program at Indiana University is pleased to announce the 2021 Carolyn Lipson-Walker Outstanding Senior Scholarship. The $1,000 scholarship will be awarded annually to a senior Jewish Studies undergraduate with a record of academic excellence and demonstrated commitment to Jewish Studies student initiatives and activities as defined by the Scholarship Committee of the Program.

Announcement of the Prize: The winner of the prize will be notified in November, 2021.

Students who are 21st Century scholars, Groups grant recipients, Pell Promise/HHSP recipients, or Wells (or Cox) Scholars, etc. may not be eligible to benefit monetarily by being awarded a scholarship because their institutional award/s may affect further funding.

This scholarship was initiated to honor Dr. Carolyn Lipson-Walker, Assistant Director of the Jewish Studies Program, for being instrumental in the growth and success of the Robert A. and Sandra S. Borns Jewish Studies Program, and to recognize her service as a friend, advisor, mentor, and teacher to hundreds of Jewish Studies students over more than 28 years. Carolyn was the inaugural recipient of the College of Arts and Sciences’ Advisor of the Year Prize (2000) and received the IU Professional Staff Merit Award in 2017. She received her Ph.D. in Folklore and American Studies at IU supported by a Rockefeller Foundation Fellowship.

This scholarship is supported by colleagues, alumni, and friends.
