Lawrence has been supported by a tremendous number of alumni, parents and other constituents. One way many of these individuals have given back is through their financial contributions to support the experiential learning of students in the areas of internships, volunteering, research and other areas of investigation into their life after Lawrence. Below is information about some possible sources of funding. If you have questions about these funds please contact The Office of Career, Life, and Community Engagement or click the appropriate links to learn more about how to apply.

The Sara A. Quandt and Thomas A. Arcury Endowment for Experiential Learning and Research in Public Health
Established in 2011 by Dr. Sara Quandt ’73 and her husband Dr. Thomas Arcury, this endowed fund reflects the couple’s appreciation for a liberal arts education and their strong interest in supporting student research and educational experiences in public health. Sara received her B.A. summa cum laude in 1973, with a major in anthropology. After Lawrence, Sara went on to complete her doctoral degree in anthropology at Michigan State University. Following faculty appointments in anthropology at the University of Pennsylvania and the University of Kentucky, she joined the Division of Public Health Sciences at Wake Forest School of Medicine in 1994, where she is Professor of Epidemiology and Prevention. The fund will support a wide range of research and academic opportunities for students who are interested in pursuing careers related to the field of public health. Funds can be used for travel expenses, stipends for work or summer research, independent study or Senior Experience projects, books, supplies, or any other aspects that would broaden and provide in-depth understanding of public health.
