Wednesday, January 14, 2015
Shirley Beatty, Class of 1951, Department of Art and Archaeology, has donated $350,000 to establish the William R. and Shirley Beatty Undergraduate Scholarships. These are to benefit undergraduate students of the Department of History of Art with the highest level of financial need. Shirley Beatty wants to ensure that students continue to have access to the wonderfully fulfilling experience she had of studying art here, whatever their circumstances. In making this investment she wants to send a message to these students and to others: namely, that the study of art and the broader humanities is immensely valuable to us as individuals, as a society and a civilization.
