Marion J. Piper Memorial Scholarship

Each year North Dakota Professional Communicators awards the Marion J. Piper Scholarship (formerly the Marion Piper Sullivan Memorial Scholarship) to a local college student. The $500 scholarship is a tribute to Marion Piper Sullivan, a former NDPC member and noted North Dakota writer, editor and historian. She died of cancer in 1969.

The NDPC Scholarship Committee awards the scholarship each spring. Selection of the scholarship recipient is based on the applicant’s essay (60 percent), career plans (20 percent) and extracurricular activities relating to communications (20 percent).

The application deadline was April 5, 2013. Submit completed application, essay and copy of transcript to Merrie Sue Holtan, NDPC President, 43497 Cty. Hwy. 53, Perham, MN 56573, or email the information to msholtan@gmail.com.
