The Neha Suri Scholarship Fund was established by the Departments of Political Science and School of Journalism and Mass Communication to honor the memory of their dedicated student, Neha Suri. Neha was a beloved 22-year-old journalism and political science major. In addition to working for Recreational Sports at the Southeast Recreational Facility and writing for The Daily Cardinal, she was also an intern for the Lt. Governor at the State Capitol and was active in the campus arts scene. Neha Suri passed away on Tuesday, Feb. 2, 2010 at UW Hospital and Clinics from a rare case of meningococcal disease. She is deeply missed.
Scholarship recipients will be selected by the College of Letters & Science. Recipients should be Juniors or Seniors majoring in Political Science or Journalism and Mass Communication. Reflective of Neha's time at the University of Wisconsin, a strong preference is given to those applicants seeking a combined major in both areas of study with a passion for service and/or campus involvement as noted above. While financial need is to be considered when selecting the scholar, preference should be given to applicants meeting the above criteria. This award is renewable in that the same student may receive the award for multiple years as long at their path qualifies for the scholarship terms.
