The Ellyn Lancaster Scholarship was established in 2013 to assist women in Washington, Greene or Sullivan counties who are returning to college during a time of transition. Applicants must be pursuing an undergraduate or graduate degree in social work at East Tennessee State University, and must demonstrate unmet financial need. Preference will be given to applicants planning to attend school in Tennessee and work in the East Tennessee area following graduation. Factors to be considered by the selection committee will be: financial need; general aptitude for advanced educational work; evidence of participation in and service to the community; and the maturity and professionalism of the student, in that order of importance. The selection committee reserves the right to conduct brief interviews with finalists.
