The generosity of Michael Snodgrass (BA ’87) led to the creation of a scholarship to honor his mother, Carol, a teacher whose lifelong passion for learning and travel inspired her children and grandchildren to study abroad.

Michael studied in Spain and became a professor of Latin American history. The Carol A. Snodgrass scholarship fund supports undergraduate students studying abroad in Spain and Latin America.

“The Carol A. Snodgrass scholarship reflects the Snodgrass family’s passion for learning and travel in the Spanish-speaking world. Their gift allows students to travel to Spain and Latin America in order to broaden their understanding of a language and culture that continually enrich global civilization. Carol A. Snodgrass and her family are an inspiration to those seeking intellectual and personal growth through experience abroad,” said Russ Ganim, associate provost and dean of International Programs.
