The Dr. Valerie Earle Memorial GU Scholarship

Scholarship Description
This scholarship was established with a gift under the will of the late Dr. Valerie Earle to provide grant assistance to undergraduates who demonstrate financial need. Dr. Earle was the first woman appointed to the liberal arts faculty at Georgetown. The native Texan arrived at GU in 1955 after having taught at San Francisco State College and the University of Alabama. Dr. Earle quickly established her courses on constitutional law as core elements of Georgetown's government curriculum. When a GU Faculty Senate was created in 1965, Dr. Earle drafted its first bylaws; a year later she was elected as its first president. Elected chairperson of the Government Department in 1972, she was the first woman to head a major department of Georgetown University. Dr. Earle retired from full-time teaching at GU in 1986 but continued to teach part-time despite being confined to a wheelchair. From her first classes until her death at the age of 85 in August 2004, Professor Emeritus Earle profoundly impacted Georgetown in its growth from a small institution to a major national university. As a last act of loyalty and devotion to Georgetown, Dr. Earle left in her will a portion of her estate for the establishment of a scholarship fund for students with financial need.
