Tricia Donovan served as a GED instructor for many years, during which time she also worked toward her Ph.D. at the UMass School of Education in Amherst, completing her program in 2006. Her decades of work improved the lives of thousands who may never have succeeded after traditional education turned out to not be a good fit for their learning journey.
To honor and continue Tricia’s legacy of compassion and joy, her family and friends have raised funds for an endowed scholarship in her name at GCC to ensure that support from the Tricia Donovan Scholarship will be in place to help students for years to come.
The Tricia Donovan Memorial Scholarship Fund is a permanently endowed fund established to support current Greenfield Community College students who have obtained their General Equivalency Diploma (GED). 2015 award: $475
The Tricia Donovan Family Scholarship Fund is a permanently endowed fund established to support new Greenfield Community College students who are single mothers who have obtained their General Equivalency Diploma (GED). 2015 award: $1,550
Deadline for the 2015 Tricia Donovan Memorial Scholarships is September 25, 2015, 4:00pm
