The League established the Anne Rudin Scholarship Fund to commemorate the accomplishments of former Sacramento Mayor Anne Rudin and to enable other women to pursue higher education in the fields of public administration and public policy.
Anne Rudin served both as President of the League of Women Voters of Sacramento and the League of Women Voters of California. She then became a member of the Sacramento City Council for twelve years, and Mayor of Sacramento from 1983 to 1992. Anne Rudin is the first woman to be elected Mayor of Sacramento.
Amount: A scholarship of $2,000 is typically awarded at a League of Women Voters Anne Rudin Scholarship and Suffragists’ Reception; however, this year, it will likely be presented virtually and then mailed to the winning applicant.
Eligibility and Selection: The scholarship is open to women who are enrolled in public administration, government, or public policy related programs at an institution of higher education in the Sacramento area. The applicant must be enrolled in upper division studies or be a graduate student. Applications will be reviewed by a committee under the leadership of the League of Women Voters of Sacramento County. Applicants will be evaluated on the basis of:
- Academic record
- Commitment to public service
- Career objectives
Applications must be postmarked by September 30, 2020 and sent to:
Nancy Compton, Chair, League of Women Voters Scholarship Committee
15256 Nueva Drive, Rancho Murieta, CA 95683.
