About AAUP-UC Scholarships

Two $1,000 scholarships are awarded annually at the AAUP-UC spring luncheon. Members of the bargaining unit are invited to nominate worthy Utica College students in their next-to-last year, that is, juniors or students who are continuing in(to) a graduate program at Utica College

While any nominee should have both an outstanding academic record and an interest in service to the community, the emphasis is different, with the Millett scholarship highlighting the academic and the Crisafulli highlighting service. A subcommittee of the governing board reviews the nominations and determines the winners of the scholarships.

The Virgil C. Crisafulli Scholarship is awarded each year to a junior for demonstrated outstanding leadership in regard to at least one of AAUP’s core values such as academic freedom, professional responsibility, civic service, humanitarian concern for others, and solidarity with those who share the common goals of equity and voice for all.

The Robert W. Millett Scholarship is awarded for academic excellence reflecting the values of the AAUP: respect for open dialogue and the free exchange of ideas; the right to self-expression; integrity in scholarly endeavors; and support for academic freedom.
