To honor the generous legacy of Mrs. Watkins, past residents of Watkins and Miller Halls, through Kitchen 8, established the Elizabeth Miller Watkins Memorial Scholarship Fund in 1998. The Fund that began with a few hundred dollars will this year award over $65,000 in scholarships. We would like to thank all who have donated this year. It is amazing how one woman’s vision can impact so many women’s lives. Recipients of this scholarship automatically become members of Kitchen 8's group Lizzie's Legacies.
The Scholarship Advisory Committee welcomes contributions in order to award even more scholarships to accomplished, deservins young KU women who have demonstrated financial need.
You may make a contribution to the Elizabeth Miller Watkins Memorial Scholarship Fund in a variety of ways:
Checks can be made payable to the "Greater Kansas City Community Foundation". Please be sure to note "WATK01" on the memo line to ensure your contribution gets to the proper fund. Omitting this will result in the donation being sent to another fund.
