Cathleen Knauf '75

Established by Cathleen Knauf ‘75 and family to assist fellow Lakers with the cost of earning their degree at Grand Valley State University (GVSU). Being a multi-generational family of Grand Valley alums, the Knauf family saw the value in giving back to the school that shaped the direction of their early adult lives. Had it not been for opportunities realized at Grand Valley, their lives would have surely take different paths. The education their family received at GVSU inspired them to invest in their communities and serve others through our careers in education, law enforcement, health, and women’s advocacy. It is their hope that this scholarship will ease the burden of students for years to come, and help them give back to their community while completing their academic goals.
