I connect to almost all of the criteria on this scholarship, but I live in Michigan and will attend a college as well. Is there any way for me to still be eligible for this scholarship even though I am from out of the area? Thank you for your consideration.

April 3, 2018

by Susan Dutca

A professor at the University of California at Santa Cruz believed she was "unstalkable" up until a student of hers began sending messages that were at first flirtatious and ultimately turned to threats of rape and murder. Much of the #MeToo conversation in higher education revolves around educators who "harass" or "target" students; but some educators themselves actually become vulnerable to harassment by their own students and remain silent out of a sense of guilt, embarrassment, and often the fear of losing their jobs.
