Glennis McCrary Goodrich Scholarships

February 13, 2004
Baylor is making study abroad opportunities more affordable for some students by offering the Glennis McCrary Goodrich Scholarships for International Study. The 35 recipients of this annual award will receive up to $3,000 for participation in summer programs and up to $5,000 for semester-long programs.
Baylor students who have a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.0, plan to return to campus to study for at least one semester after travel and participate in a study abroad program sanctioned by the Center for International Education are eligible to apply.
Applicants will be evaluated on the basis of financial need and their other efforts to finance their studies, academic merit, academic, personal and practical preparation for international study, significance of study abroad to their academic development and their academic focus. The region of study also will be taken into consideration with preference given to those who will study in underrepresented areas and those who choose semester or yearlong programs. A student can be awarded a Goodrich scholarship once.
The scholarship is in honor of Glennis McCrary Goodrich, BA '29, who served as captain of the Baylor women's football team, the first collegiate co-educational football team in the world. She provided most of the funds for the Glennis McCrary Music Building and also contributed to the Armstrong Browning Library and an endowed scholarship for Baylor music students. In 1990, McCrary was awarded the Founders Medal by President Emeritus Herbert H. Reynolds.
