The Rose I. Kelly Award
 
 
The Rose I. Kelly Award was established by a University of Scranton Alumnus, Joseph Wineburgh, Ph.D., to link the efforts of educators to the achievements of college students. It is an award presented jointly to a student in each undergraduate college who has completed two years at the University (currently a junior) and to the teacher who he or she recognizes as having had a great impact on his/her life. The student selected by each college will have demonstrated exemplary achievement in both academics and in general campus involvement.
