This year we lost a special member of the Mansfield University family, Tamara Soderberg. Tam’s work in the Admission Department at Mansfield University enhanced the experiences of our international students while increasing international diversity on our campus. She made a lasting impression on every student and staff member she met. Many international students say they would not be where they are today if not for Tam’s influence on their lives. Recently Tam’s mother and cousin sponsored a flagpole in her memory on the University’s International Walkway. A significant portion of the flagpole sponsorship is used for scholarship. In addition, many members of the university community, including students, faculty and staffs, have asked how they might contribute to a memorial for Tam. These efforts have prompted the desire to establish a lasting legacy in Tam’s memory through an endowed scholarship fund.

As part of the memorial to Tam, we are working to build The Tamara Soderberg Endowed Scholarship Fund to at least the minimum endowed level of $10,000. The endowed fund will be used to provide scholarship assistance for international and non-traditional students. The term endowed means the principal of the fund will never be spent. Income from the fund will be used to underwrite the purpose of the endowment and assures the fund will exist in perpetuity, providing an ongoing source of support and a lasting legacy in Tam’s memory.
If you are interested in contributing to this endowed memorial scholarship, please contact the Mansfield University Foundation at 570.662.4852 or follow this link to give online. Select Scholarships for International Students and pull down "Tamara Soderberg Memorial Scholarship" from the drop down box.
If you have questions or comments please email Mindy Engel
