Linda D. Hemm BIS Endowed Scholarship
In memory of his wife Linda. D. Hemm, Robert V. Hemm established the Linda D. Hemm BIS Endowed Scholarship in 2018. The purpose of the Fund is to provide scholarship support for undergraduate juniors or seniors pursuing a degree through the Bachelor in Individualized Study (BIS) program. Recipients will qualify on the basis of academic merit. Applicants must submit a 250-500 word essay describing how the scholarship would benefit their BIS experience and a recommendation letter from a faculty member at Mason.
Linda Hemm served as an academic advisor for the Bachelor of Individualized Study (BIS) Program from 1993 until her final illness and untimely death in 2018. “Miss Linda,” as she was affectionately called by students, provided advising and encouragement to countless adult students who returned to Mason to complete undergraduate degrees through the BIS Program.
