2014 Jennifer Dunn-Thomson Scholarship

Provided by Washington Policy Center

Description:
In 2005, Washington Policy Center (WPC) honored Congresswoman Jennifer Dunn with our annual Champion of Freedom Award "for her contributions throughout her distinguished Congressional career," and "her strong leadership, support of free-market principles and being a friend to small businesses and taxpayers on the death tax repeal and other tax reforms." We continue to honor her legacy by presenting the third annual Jennifer Dunn-Thomson Scholarship through the Jennifer Dunn-Thomson Fund for America's Future. The $5,000 scholarship will be awarded to a female college student who embodies Jennifer's values of leadership, commitment to public service and free-market principles. The recipient of the scholarship may use the money to pay for tuition or for an internship on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. WPC will help the recipient with an internship placement with a member of Congress in the fall of 2014. Last year's scholarship recipient, Kendra Clark, said, "I am truly honored to become a part of Congresswoman Dunn-Thomson's legacy. She was a model of character, integrity and hard work that I admire and emulate in my own life. I can only dream of following such a strong woman's footsteps and hope that one day I may have the same lasting impact." A University of Washington graduate, Kendra is using the scholarship to pursue her law degree at American University in Washington, D.C.
