Katherine L. Grenda and Donald N. Ritzenhein Endowed Scholarship for Students in the Arts

The Grenda & Ritzenhein scholarship is designed for students who wish to pursue any number of arts disciplines. Research shows that students with a solid Liberal Arts background excel in a wide range of employment opportunities and careers because they have the ability to develop and critique situations that involve speaking, listening, writing, history, humanities, and the human condition. Such wisdom promotes a passion for improving humanity and the world.
