Do you want to make Whitman a more just community? Get $2500 to fund an original project that promotes compassion this Spring!

Whitman students are invited to apply for the Ben Rabinowitz Student Driven Project, worth $2500, so you can bring your vision of a more compassionate community to fruition. The award's Endowment is given in honor of former Whitman College President, Tom Crtonin. The purpose is to help students with demonstrated leadership skills to implement new projects or learning opportunities that promote compassion in medicine or politics and also enrich the Whitman community.
