The Florence E. Dunn Scholarship

This scholarship was established by the late Florence E. Dunn — a Colby graduate (Class of 1892), a longtime professor of English, and for many years a trustee.

Dunn, who died in 1964, designated in her will that, following the death of her last surviving individual beneficiary, Colby would receive the remainder of her trust. She directed the College to establish a special scholarship fund, with first preference to Maine students who needed financial help to attend Colby.

When the trust came to the College it had grown to $1.6 million. That enables Colby to establish, in perpetuity, a full scholarship for a member of each class to be designated Dunn Scholars.

Dunn was born in Waterville and was one of the first members of Colby’s chapter of Phi Beta Kappa. She earned a master’s degree at Radcliffe College and rose to full professor in Colby’s English Department, retiring from teaching in 1934 to serve as a trustee.
