Learn more about your impact

Your gift to the Gerontological Social Work Scholarship supports an endowed scholarship established by Dr. Teri Kennedy in honor of her late parents, Stanley and Bernadine Knutson, and grandparents, Albert and Emma (Spurr) Berg and Selmer and Myrtle (Hyland) Knutson. The scholarship was created in respect for older adults, and in recognition of the critical need for social workers prepared to address the service delivery and policy needs of an aging population.
