Sarah Philipps Memorial Scholarship

The Sarah Philipps Memorial Scholarship is made possible through the generosity of Dr. and Mrs. Ervin Philipps. The money is given in memory of their daughter, Sarah, a University of Colorado Boulder student who died in the crash of PanAm flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland returning from a semester’s study in London in 1988. The study abroad scholarship has been set up in her honor to provide assistance to students majoring in English and participating in an education abroad program in the UK or Ireland. Preference is also given to a student “with an appetite for adventure and experience.”

Eligibility: Enrolled as an undergraduate at CU Boulder; majoring in English or demonstrating a strong desire to study English, Shakespeare or related subjects in the UK or Ireland. Must be going on an approved CU Boulder education abroad program for a semester or year.

Award: The scholarship is given twice per year and is typically $5,000-7,000.
