Jody Olsen Scholarship for Returning Peace Corps Volunteers (RPCV's) at UM SSW

Jody Olsen RPCV Scholarship A Project of Named Scholarships & Endowments

Once established, The Jody Olsen Scholarship for Returning Peace Corps Volunteers will provide an annual scholarship for a returning Peace Corps Volunteer who is seeking a degree from UM SSW. This scholarship will be available to any RPCV in good standing at UM SSW: MSW or PhD candidate.

How can you help?

When you make a gift of any size to The Jody Olsen Scholarship for RPCV's at UM SSW, the University of Maryland Baltimore Foundation, Inc. (UMBF) will match your donation 50 cents on the dollar. The goal of our fundraising is to meet the $25,000 minimum threshold to establish this scholarship. UM SSW has already received $10,000 in pledges towards this goal. Therefore, if we can raise $6,666 from alumni and friends with similar philanthropic attitudes, UMBF's matching funds will allow us to reach the $25,000 goal.
