The Emilee Dawn Gagnon Memorial Scholarship

The Emilee Dawn Gagnon Memorial Scholarship honors Emilee Gagnon ’13, an authentic individual who brought to Westfield State University a spirit of creativity, curiosity, wide-ranging academic interests, openness, diligence, and social consciousness. A feminist who championed human, environmental, and animal rights passionately, Emilee combined her personal values and interests with her academic work. This memorial scholarship will celebrate Emilee’s unique contributions to the WSU community by recognizing a student who embodies her core characteristics.


“This scholarship will really help me to be able to focus less on the stress of affording my education and more on accomplishing my goals.”
