Rebecca Laury

Alpha Lambda Delta announced that University of Central Arkansas student Rebecca Laury was awarded the Mary Jane Stevenson Graduate Fellowship in the amount of $5,000. This graduate fellowship is for the 2019-20 academic year.

Alpha Lambda Delta awards 26 graduate fellowships annually to its members from a national pool of competitive applicants. Award amounts range from $3,000 to $6,500 and are used to offset the expense of pursuing graduate or professional studies.

Laury was inducted into Alpha Lambda Delta in 2016 and is currently the president of the UCA chapter. She is currently studying health science and will pursue a doctorate in physical therapy. Laury is involved in Relay for Life, the Pre-Physical Therapy Club and the Student Orientation Staff. She is also a member of the Norbert O. Schedler Honors College.

Each Alpha Lambda Delta Fellowship is named for a person of significance to the organization. The Mary Jane Stevenson Fellowship honors the woman who served as dean of women at Albright College and Westminster College, prior to going to Bucknell University in 1947 as dean of women. Stevenson retired in July 1981 after serving for 10 years as the executive director of National Alpha Lambda Delta.
