Janice M. Gould Endowed Memorial Scholarship

Letters, Arts, and Sciences, Need Based
Supplemental Questions
  1. Janice Gould was many things--a poet, a scholar, a martial artist, an activist, and more. As a poet, Janice used art in part as a vehicle for self-realization, elsewhere as a way to connect to other people and to have a sense of community. In a MINIMUM OF 300 WORDS, if you could choose a form of artistic expression, what is an experience or story you would share with others both as a vehicle of self-realization and to have a sense of community? MAXIMUM OF 500 WORDS allowed. Essays will be ranked based upon content, length, grammar, spelling, organized structure, and attention to detail. You are encouraged to write an essay that grabs the attention of the reader by being creative and using rich language.
