CCWH establishes Rachel Fuchs Memorial Award

Rachel FuchsThe Coordinating Council for Women in History have decided to honor the memory of our recently departed Rachel Fuchs with an award that recognizes and applauds service to the profession, including mentoring. The Rachel Ginnis Fuchs Memorial Award of $500 will be given annually to celebrate an individual whose service is most representative of Rachel’s own.

The breadth of Rachel’s service to her chosen profession is truly awe-inspiring. Rachel’s abundant scholarship is widely read and she was and is acknowledged as a leader in her field of French History. Yet Rachel was so much more to her students, her peers, and her colleagues at many different institutions and in numerous organizations. Learn more >>
