Three Students Receive 2021 Housing Family Scholarship

University Housing awarded the Fall 2021 Housing Family Scholarship to three students who have a family member affiliated with the office.  

The Housing Family Scholarship is a book scholarship awarded to a dependent child, grandchild, niece or nephew of a housing staff member.  

This scholarship fund became endowed in Spring 2019 and was awarded for the first time in Fall 2019.   

Fall 2021 Housing Family Scholarship Recipients

  • Eleanor Adams, a sophomore from Farmington majoring in marketing 

  • Landin 'Noni' Madewell, a first-year student from Prairie Grove majoring in art history 

  • Lexie Madewell, a junior from Prairie Grove majoring in finance

University Housing employs approximately 175 full-time staff members who serve our on-campus students in the residence halls daily.  

"Many of our staff members work at the university to provide a tuition waiver for their children or dependents. In these uncertain times, this book scholarship is another way to help ease the financial costs of a college education," said Flo Johnson, assistant vice chancellor for University Housing.

Generous gifts and donations from supporters of this scholarship and University Housing allow the department to grant this scholarship award.  

"The Housing Family Scholarship alone has paid for my books and additional class supplies, which has been very helpful. I am very grateful to have been awarded this scholarship and I am appreciative of these funds, as they have contributed to my success in academic endeavors," said recipient Lexie Madewell.

The Housing Family Scholarship is awarded each year at the beginning of the fall semester.
