The Scholarships

The Klein Family Scholarships have been established with gifts by and in memory of the late Linda B. Klein. Linda was of Hungarian descent on her father’s side, and she formed a great love and respect for Sewanee, the education it makes available, and the values it teaches. The scholarships are available for students from Hungary and other central and eastern European countries. They cover the cost of tuition, room, board and fees and are renewable for the full four years of study. The first Klein Family Scholarships were awarded in 2007 and 2008 to Hungarian students who have now graduated from Sewanee. Four more Hungarian students are now pursuing their studies on the Mountain (as Sewanee is often known).

Sewanee - The University of the South

Known familiarly as “Sewanee,” The University of the South is located atop the Cumberland Plateau between Nashville and Chattanooga, Tennessee. The University recently celebrated its 150th anniversary. At just under 1,500 students, Sewanee intentionally remains small and dedicated to building a sense of community. All classes are taught by professors, not teaching assistants. The university has had 26 Rhodes Scholars—a number that puts Sewanee in the top four American liberal arts colleges. Sewanee upholds the broad-based ideals of the liberal arts education and attaches great importance to preparing its graduates for a life of service to others. Sewanee’s 13,000 acre domain provides a remarkable academic and recreational resource and an unparalleled place in which to study and reflect, and it invites students to engage in a multitude of outdoor activities and careful study of the natural environment.
