Scholarship created for E-school employees' children

The School of Engineering and Applied Science has created a scholarship for sons and daugh- ters of the school's faculty and staff who are attending any U.Va. undergraduate program. The scholarship is named in honor of Jean Holliday, who served as secretary or administrative assistant to deans of the engineering school from 1944-'81. "Dean Jean," as she was affectionately known, was loved by many students and faculty during her 37 years of service to the school.

The initial goal to establish an endowment of $100,000 has been exceeded by contributions from staff, faculty, alumni and friends of Holliday, and money continues to be contributed to the scholarship, said engineering professor George L. Cahen Jr., chair of the campaign committee. The fund has been the major focus of the School of Engineering's Faculty/Staff Campaign.

The scholarship is being offered for the first time this fall to six children of staff and faculty. The earnings of the endowment are divided equally among the applicants each year, Cahen said. Unlike some colleges and universities, U.Va. doesn't offer a free- or reduced-tuition benefit for the children of its employees. The school hopes the fund will eventually generate enough earnings to pay the entire tuition of its faculty or staff children attending U.Va.

For information about the scholarship, contact the Virginia Engineering Foundation office at 924-3045. The first Jean Holliday Scholars for 1999 are:
