Laura Ann Rawlins Hinkle Scholarship
The Laura Ann Rawlins Hinkle Scholarship was made possible through a generous donation to the Indiana University School of Education. This gift was given by a donor in honor of her grandmother, who was an elementary school teacher. A scholarship has been established in the grandmother’s name.
The original intent of the scholarship is to provide partial support for “candidates who are American Indians and who plan to return to their home community or reservation to teach.” In the absence of such a candidate, the donor agrees to award the scholarship to one or more participants of the American Indian Reservation Project, to be applied toward tuition costs and possibly other expenses related to student teaching on the Navajo Indian Reservation.
