The Lori Bettison-Varga Endowment Fund

The Lori Bettison-Varga Endowment Fund will focus on supporting senior thesis/senior capstone projects, which includes materials and equipment and costs associated with conference presentations of their work.

Description

The Lori Bettison-Varga Endowment Fund will focus on supporting senior thesis/senior capstone projects, a Scripps tradition and the pinnacle of the College’s academic program.

As seniors, Scripps students are required to conduct original research that is not only the culmination of their work in their majors, but also can make significant contributions to their fields of study. On Scripps’ Capstone Day, held each spring, selected students present their theses and senior projects to peers, mentors, staff, and faculty from across The Claremont Colleges.

The fund honors former Scripps College President Lori Bettison-Varga, whose commitment to undergraduate research has been a hallmark of her leadership. Though it is focused on senior theses, the Lori Bettison-Varga Endowment Fund may be expanded to serve all undergraduate research as future needs arise.
