Washington, DC—Today, the Orrin G. Hatch Foundation unveiled the Orrin G. Hatch Scholars Program—a new education initiative that seeks to cultivate the next generation of public leaders by awarding scholarships to students from across the country who demonstrate academic excellence, personal integrity, and a commitment to civic service. After announcing that undergraduates will be able to apply for the Hatch Scholars Program starting this week, Hatch Foundation Executive Director Matt Sandgren made the following statement:

“Educating and empowering the next generation of leaders is central to the mission of the Hatch Foundation,” said Sandgren. “To that end, we have created the Hatch Scholars Program, which will open doors for students who live and work in our nation’s capital for many years to come.

Just a quick heads up that ENGL 297 A, linked with MUSIC 120, is no longer in a FIG. If you have students who are currently enrolled in MUSIC 120, or who have taken MUSIC 120 in the past, they are encouraged to sign up for ENGL 297 A (SLN 14533; students can contact IWPengl@uw.edu for enrollment assistance). IWP courses offer either "C" or "W" credit, whichever the student needs. Our courses are small, supportive learning communities (capped at 21 students) that really help address students' need for intensive peer and instructor support during this time of remote instruction. Our instructor for ENGL 297 A, Ben Luedcke, is a veteran IWP instructor, experienced professional choral conductor, and doctoral student in the Department of Music! Thanks for sharing this great opportunity with your students.
