The Christie M. Tolosky Memorial Scholarship was established by her family, friends, and classmates to perpetuate the memory of Christie's spirit, her concern for fellow human beings and her love for all animals, but especially butterflies, dragonflies, horses, cats and dogs. This scholarship will be awarded annually to an upperclassman who has demonstrated care and compassion for humans and animals in the spirit of St. Francis as Christie had done during her lifetime. It will be awarded to students who have declared a major in Social Work, Sociology, or Psychology and have at least a 3.0 GPA. Preference will be given to a student who demonstrates financial need. The recommendation from someone who can attest to the character traits of the student, preferably a faculty member, is required.
