Ottoson Family Fund for Study Abroad
The Ottoson Family Fund for Study Abroad was established in 2018 by Mary Ottoson, Class of 1968, with gratitude for the excellent faculty members with whom she was able to interact during her time as a student at Lawrence. The Ottoson family established this fund to create greater accessibility to long-term study abroad for student who otherwise would have not considered the possibility of international travel and immersion, allowing the university to foster a deeper connection between on- and off-campus experiences for all student regardless of financial resources. Awards of approximately $2,500 will be given annually. Preference for this award will be given to First Generation College Students and/or students who have not previously studied abroad.
