Tara Lynn Resnick Scholarship

The Tara Lynn Resnick Scholarship
For an Outstanding Female Sociology Undergraduate Student

The Tara Lynn Resnick scholarship honors the memory of Tara Lynn Resnick, B.A. Sociology, 1990. Tara graduated cum laude from the University of Maryland, College Park. She was a member of Alpha Kappa Delta and the Golden Key National Honor Society. Tara was an exceptional young woman, dedicated to academic excellence. Her commitment to her education was equaled by the courage and determination she demonstrated in battling a terminal illness while completing her undergraduate degree. Through this scholarship Tara’s family and friends hope to recognize and assist other exceptional young women who share Tara’s love of learning.

• Female
