Dr. Barbara J. White, ’76, and Dr. Bruce A. White have endowed a scholarship fund in their names to support students in the Gallaudet University Social Work program. This scholarship will be offered for the first time during the 2024-2025 academic year. 

In announcing the fund, Dr. Barbara White wrote, “My husband Bruce and I are pleased to establish this endowed scholarship fund for MSW students. As an undergraduate student when the social work program was first established in the 1970s, and later as a faculty member in the Social Work department when the MSW program was established in the late 1980s, it has been gratifying to witness the tremendous growth of the field of social work with deaf and hard of hearing people. We hope the fund will help increase the number of professional MSW level social workers who are deaf, deafblind, or hard of hearing to meet the growing demand for social workers with the knowledge and skills in working with the Deaf population at all system levels.”
