Webster University has announced the creation of the Harry J. Cargas Endowed Scholarship Fund. A member of Webster’s English department from 1970 until his death in 1998, Cargas was a widely respected Holocaust scholar as well as a beloved teacher and colleague.
Originally, the endowment was established by the Cargas family to support a lectureship series on Human Rights. The family has since decided to reallocate the funds contained within the Cargas Endowed Lectureship Fund to provide scholarship support for Webster students.
Initial preference will be given to Human Rights majors in the College of Arts and Sciences, but recipients need not be Human Rights majors.
