Dorothy Kirschman Women's Athletics Scholarship

Dorothy Kirschman was born and raised in Sacramento and worked for the California Department of Education. Since education was important to her she bequested a portion of her estate to establish an endowed scholarship fund with the UC Davis Foundation for deserving women student-athletes. Though we never met Mrs. Kirschman we are deeply grateful for her generosity. The fund she established supports our grant-in-aid for women scholar-athletes.
