The Derek L. Anderson Memorial Scholarship is given to doctoral or MSW students who demonstrate leadership, support, or involvement in research or scholarship that promotes responsible and informed social work practice with transgender, bisexual, lesbian, or gay (TBLG) individuals and/or communities.
The scholarship was established by Patricia Edwards, a U-M SSW alumna who seeks to empower students who are making significant contributions toward a more just and equitable society for all people.
Her hope is to assist students who possess a high degree of integrity and who have demonstrated leadership, support of, or involvement in organizations, activities, scholarship, or issues that promote responsible and informed social work practice with TBLG individuals and/or communities in the pursuit of their educational goals.
