Mary C. Pirrung founded the graduate reading program in the Seattle University College of Education. While at Seattle University, Professor Pirrung mentored many preservice and experienced teachers. Her influence on literacy education has been perpetuated by the annual awarding of the Mary C. Pirrung Scholarship.
The Mary C. Pirrung Scholarship was established in the will of Professor Pirrung after her death in 1985 to assist professional educators who pursue the master’s degree in literacy. Alumni and friends of Mary Pirrung also contribute to this scholarship fund. The scholarship of approximately $1000 is awarded annually to a superior graduate student in the Literacy for Special Needs master’s degree program who manifests the commitment to excellent literacy education exhibited by Professor Pirrung for over 30 years.
Students in the Literacy for Special Needs master’s program are eligible to apply if they have completed at least:
Application information is sent each spring to LITC candidates, and the award is granted by a committee of program faculty. Applications must be received by the date published to LITC students each year. The scholarship applies to coursework taken during the following academic year (summer, fall, winter, spring).
