Becky Tarbotton was an exceptional SCARP student, a highly successful alumna, a wonderful human being and a passionate champion of environmental and social justice. She passed away three years ago at the age of 39. 

Becky's family and close friends, in conjunction with SCARP, are setting up a scholarship in her name. The goal is to raise $90,000 so that we can award $3,000 annually to a student who shares Becky's vision for the planet and who strives for transformative change. We are already almost half way towards that goal and we hope to offer the first scholarship in the fall of 2016.
