Support the Jennifer L. Matheson Resiliency Scholarship
Professor Jenn Matheson’s touching tale of survival after being infected with a life-threatening, undiagnosed respiratory infection that hospitalized her for five months is about resiliency, gratitude and the generosity of others. In our department of Human Development and Family Studies, we have a deep interest in studying and supporting "resilience" - the ability of individuals and families to persevere in spite of tremendous odds, and to come out on top. We cannot think of a more fitting description for Jenn: resilient. Thus, it is in honor and celebration of Jenn that our department has come together to create the Jennifer L. Matheson Resiliency Scholarship. Please join us in making this gift in honor of Jenn and her resilience, and the resounding effects this will have on generations of students to come.
