The Becky Most Fellowship program is named in honor of Becky Most (pictured above), a beloved staff member at Maggie’s Place who was dedicated to encouraging moms to pursue their educational and employment dreams. A graduate of Purdue University, Becky was on her way back to her alma mater to pursue an advanced degree when she was killed in an automobile accident.
The scholarship was launched in the fall of 2012 and provides current and alumnae Maggie’s Place moms with a $1,000 scholarship to help fund their educational goals. The fellowship will be offered twice annually.
