About Sr. Dorothy
Sr. Dorothy Kazel, O.S.U., was an Ursuline Sister and one of four U.S. churchwomen murdered in El Salvador on December 2, 1980, by Salvadoran soldiers. Ignatian Solidarity Network has dedicated this scholarship in honor of her life’s work to advocate for the economically poor and marginalized in El Salvador. She was an alumna of John Carroll University.
The scholarship is open to current undergraduate students attending Catholic universities who want to work with their campus community to advocate for humane immigration reform. Qualified individuals are students who are:

Scholarship recipients will be required to attend an organizing-focused breakout session on Sunday, 11/17 with ISN’s Director of Education and Advocacy on Migration, José Arnulfo Cabrera. In addition, scholarship recipients will commit to working with José in organizing their campus communities post-IFTJ.
Nominations are due September 27. Nominated students will be contacted via email with information regarding the scholarship and application process. Student applications are due October 1.
All scholarship monies will be sent directly to the university. Scholarship recipients may be included in or added to a school’s currently registered delegation number.
