Two receive new scholarships in women/gender studies, GLBT activism

Two UW-Green Bay students received the first scholarships given at the University for student excellence in “Women’s and Gender Studies” and student excellence in “GLBT Activism.” Kelli Klein, a junior political science major from Madison, was the recipient of a $250 merit scholarship for Women’s and Gender Studies. Jamie Karlin, a senior biology major from Manitowoc, won a $250 merit scholarship for GLBT activism. The scholarships were made possible with proceeds from UW-Green Bay’s turn as host, in April 2008, of the UW System’s annual LGBTQ and women’s studies conferences.
