The Beverly J. Smith Memorial Scholarship has been established by the Harrisburg Branch of AAUW to honor our past president. Ms. Smith was a nationally known and respected expert on refugee resettlement and immigration. She devoted her life to helping people of diverse nationalities begin new lives and obtain education, homes, health care, and legal advice.
AAUW would like to honor her memory by assisting in the education of a woman working toward a bachelor’s degree. AAUW would especially like to assist someone who embodies Ms. Smith's vision.
