The Theresa Earenfight Liberation History Scholarship


The purpose of The Theresa Earenfight Liberation History Scholarship is to support undergraduate or graduate students who are passionate about the intersection of social justice and animal liberation within the discipline of History. Applicants should be studying history, and be interested in how history expands our understanding of animal activism, animal rights, environmental activism, veganism, feminist animal rights, intersectional justice, or other intersecting topics. Applicants should be interested in combining the powers of History and Critical Animal Studies to illuminate possibilities of a future without exploitation. Preference will be given to students with strong financial need, students of color and those from historically marginalized communities, and/or students who may face barriers to receiving other scholarships.  This scholarship is offered in honor of the inspirational and empowering pedagogy of Dr. Theresa Earenfight whose research and teaching focuses on questions of women and power, authority, and agency.

This is a $10,000 annual scholarship renewable through the completion of the student’s degree, assuming the student continues to meet the eligibility criteria. The scholarship may be applied to tuition and fees, or other academic expenses payable to the college or university.
