Kenyon College

Jennifer Rudolph Walsh has created a scholarship for her alma mater, Kenyon College, in honor of her grandparents. The Zangwill Rudolph and Florence Laye Scholarship will be given annually to a first generation college student.

Brief youtube video here.

"
Establishing a scholarship for a particular child in a specific circumstance was incredibly attractive to me," Walsh said. "My grandmother and grandfather came to this country and educated their family with their hard work and sacrifice, and I want to give a student the same opportunity."

Jennifer, I think it is wonderful that you are doing this. My inlaws sponsor fellows at Rutgers and I have seen firsthand how their generosity effects the lives of the students. My hat goes off to you!

Dear Ms.Walsh

I am Hanne Vandenbroucke, a student from the university of Leuven in
Belgium. I am writing you with a question about an author: Alice
Munro. Currently I am writing my master thesis about her latest bundle
and I would like to go and listen to her when she speaks about her
work.

However, I could not find any information whether Miss Munro gives
lectures or travels and goes on tour to talk about her work.
Could it be possible to let me know if Miss Munro still gives lectures
(in Canada, the US or Europe) and when she will be doing this?

my email address: hannevandenbroucke (@gmail.com)

Thanks in advance.

Kind regards,

Hanne Vandenbroucke
